From the introduction:

Becuase of You: Annual Report FY 2013 cover

Because of you, our loyal, community-minded supporters, the Pratt Library is serving Baltimore and Maryland better than ever.

BECAUSE OF YOU, our neighborhood branches are vibrant with activity. Residents gather to participate in Pratt programs, learn about local resources, and ensure a better future for children and teens.

BECAUSE OF YOU, our eLibrary makes eReaders available throughout the Pratt system. Together with a growing eBook collection, the Pratt Library adds an exciting reading option to its vast print collection for 21st-century patrons.

BECAUSE OF YOU, job seekers are finding employment. Public-access computers, job classes and workshops, and librarian assistance provide opportunities for career development to customers across the socioeconomic spectrum.

BECAUSE OF YOU, the Pratt Library is a vital cultural intersection that creates memorable experiences, enriches lives, and reflects the ideals of our democracy.

THIS REPORT acknowledges you, our dedicated supporters, for understanding the importance of our mission and the contributions the Pratt Library makes to the lives of city and state residents. The public funding we receive helps sustain our operations, keeping doors open and lights on but private donor support is essential for the signature programs that make the Pratt such a beloved civic institution.

A HEARTFELT THANK YOU to all whose generosity and foresight make our programs possible.
