Pratt Advisory Council

The Pratt Advisory Council was formed by the Library's Board of Directors. The Council is composed of community representatives from many different Baltimore City neighborhoods, as well as representatives from Library staff, the Board of Directors, the Mayor's Office, and the City Council. The Council's mission is to provide a forum for the mutual exchange of ideas and information and to facilitate problem solving among the Library Board, Library staff, and the many communities it serves. The Council, which meets bimonthly, is an important conduit for community concerns and discussion of library-related issues. As part of the Library's continuing outreach to Baltimore neighborhoods, the Library staff and the Board are pleased to be working with members of the Pratt Advisory Council. For information about the Council and its work, please contact the Chief -Neighborhood Library Services at 410-545-7130.
