Thank You for Being You!

The Enoch Pratt Free Library is proud to be celebrating one year being fine-free. We’re celebrating with Customer Appreciation Day on Monday, June 3!

Stop by your neighborhood Pratt Library branch anytime throughout the day to join in on the fun. Enjoy snacks in the morning and the evening, and giveaways while supplies last. Have you misplaced your Pratt Library card? Not too worry, replacement fees for lost cards will be waived during the entire day. All you would need to do is visit the circulation desk for details and get your replacement card.

The cards allows you to access to so much that the Pratt has to offer with books, music (Did you know we have vinyl records? 😍) and more in our catalog. There’s plenty of eBooks and eAudiobooks available to download in Overdrive, RBdigital, and Hoopla.

Thanks again for being you, an awesome part of the Enoch Pratt Free Library.
