Enoch Pratt Free Library Houses the State Library Resource Center

The Central Library of Baltimore City's public library system, the Enoch Pratt Free Library, was designated the State Library Resource Center (SLRC) by the General Assembly in 1971.

This designation and accompanying State support allow all Maryland citizens to have access to a public library whose resources are unparalleled in the State. SLRC works with regional, local public, school, special and academic libraries which allows materials and information to be shared state- wide. SLRC provides services to Marylanders and serves as a back-up information resource for local libraries and their customers.

How do you use this resource from around the state?

If you are not within easy driving or telephone calling distance, you may use the extensive resources of the State Library Resource Center through your own local public library, which has access to SLRC collections and expertise through the Maryland Interlibrary Organization (MILO), headquartered in Pratt's Central Library.
