The Grand re-Opening of the Pennsylvania Avenue Branch on Nov 14 was a lot of fun. I had the opportunity to meet library customers from the neighborhood and ask them, "What does this library mean to you?"
Helen Williams is a new resident to Baltimore, living in the Pennsylvania Avenue area. It was her letter to the mayor's office that kickstarted the entire renovation process, and I was honored to have the opportunity to interview her.
Sheila and Anjanette Wiggins are a power mother-daughter duo at the Pennsylvania Avenue Branch. Anjanette is a young adult librarian, and regular contributor to Pratt Chat. Sheila is the chair of the Friends of Pennsylvania Avenue Branch, a group which was key in supporting the renovation efforts.
Finally, in case you missed it, Ryan O'Grady and Roswell Encinca produced a great video all about the Grand re-Opening.
