“I am so honored to be sharing the news of the opening of the Senator Barbara A. Mikulski room here at the Enoch Pratt Free Library,” says Senator Barbara Mikulski. “The room will house some of my most treasured artifacts from my time as the Senator for Maryland. It is my greatest hope that people from across the state will come to the Enoch Pratt to use the room and feel inspired by what they see inside.”

The Mikulski Room features historic mementos including Senator Mikulski’s Presidential Medal of Freedom awarded by President Barack Obama. When the Central Library reopens the Mikulski Room will be used for adult literacy and women’s leadership programming. “We want to celebrate the opening of the Mikulski Room, even if it is virtually, during the Year of the Woman,” says Pratt Library President & CEO Heidi Daniel. “It is such an important addition to the newly renovated Central Library and we can’t wait for the day we are able to welcome people inside.”

The conversation with Senator Mikulski and Ambassador Sherman will be available via the Pratt Library’s Facebook page.
