Holiday Closing All Pratt Library locations will be closed Monday, May 30 in observance of Memorial Day.

Thank you for joining us! This year's theme celebrated the long legacy of literary excellence in Baltimore—from Poe to Fitzgerald, to the Baltimore Sun and the Pratt itself, the Black & White Party is a celebration of the stories that bring us together. We hope you will join us again next year.
