The Orleans Street Branch is located in the heart of Oldtown and serves Butchers Hill, Fells Point, Dunbar-Broadway, Perkins Homes, Harbors East, Johnstown Square, and Middle East neighborhoods.

Opened in 1888, the Broadway branch was located at North Broadway and Miller streets. In February 1971, the original building closed and a new building opened at Broadway and Orleans streets. In 2007, the branch was relocated again to the corner of Orleans Street and Central Avenue, and is now known as the Orleans Street branch. Read more Pratt location history.
