September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month

As students are hitting the books, there’s one thing you can arm them with for success: a Pratt Library card.  Did you know there are all different kinds?

FIRST CARD: For children six and under, the First Card is  fine-free. Featuring popular Olivia the Pig, the First Card allows you to bring home enough books to keep your littlest readers entertained until your next library trip.



CHILDREN & TEEN CARDS: For ages 7-17, the children and teen cards enjoy reduced late fees of just 10 cents a day.





TEACHER CARD: Baltimore City School educators and registered home school parents can check out 30 items that can circulate for 6 weeks and be renewed once.



1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

In our latest edition of Stories from the Stacks, we introduce you to the Mowbray family who are loyal customers of our Waverly Branch.  4-year old Emerson and his parents write down all the books he reads.  This summer, he hit more than a thousand.  Congratulations, Emerson!

Check out the Pratt Library’s First Card for our customers under six so your children can start hitting the books too!
