Summer is wonderful in so many ways: Laying on the beach, hiking and camping in the mountains or just lounging in your back yard or front porch. One of the best things about these summer activities you can do it with a great book. So why waste it with the wrong one.

That’s where our Pratt librarians and staff come in. If you want a good book to read they definitely have you covered.


Pratt CEO Carla Hayden and librarians regularly give their recommendations to several media outlets: WBAL-TV, WYPR radio, and the Baltimore Sun’s B The Site. Dr. Hayden gives her book recommendations every month on WBAL-TV and every other month on WYPR’s Maryland Morning.  The book recommendations are always timely with current trends. For example, when the Hunger Games was flying off the shelves and people were pouring into movie theaters, Dr. Hayden gave young adult book recommendations.  

For the next couple of months, the books we will be recommending on TV, radio, and print will all focus on fun summer reads. From best-sellers to undiscovered gems, and from memoirs to chick lit: We have it.
