During this time of year, its good to reflect and appreciate our blessings and achievements. Our biggest thanks will always go to our patrons and our donors. Nearly two million people visit the Pratt Library every year. We are fully aware of the impact our resources and services provide every single person who walks through our doors.
To show our appreciation we made this video to showcase how the library is not only helpful but transformational to generations of Baltimoreans. Stories like these are happening every day at all 22 Pratt locations. Here's one from the Pennsylvania Avenue Branch.
All of our programs and services would not be possible without the generosity of our donors. Recently the The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation awarded the library a $350,000 grant over two years. Its the largest grant to a public library in support of eBooks and eReaders.
