How to Participate

During the month of May, Baltimore City children in fifth grade and younger can visit any Pratt location and show their library card to get a Ticket to Discovery bookmark, while supplies last.

Borrow, read, or listen to someone read any five books that spark creativity and curiosity and record them on your bookmark. You can also register and track your progress online with Beanstack.

Bookmarks are only available during the month of May, though participating children have through August 31, 2022 to complete the program and visit Port Discovery.
