Help Us Stack the Shelves at the Pratt!

This Giving Tuesday, your donation can help purchase a book that will go directly into the Pratt Library collection, and the hands of readers in Baltimore and around Maryland. From beloved classics like Little Women to new bestsellers like The Vanishing Half, more than two million library materials are checked out from the Pratt each year. Your gift can spark a love of reading today.
