Since its founding, the Enoch Pratt Free Library has been an ambassador for knowledge and education for all Marylanders. Today the 1930s-era Central Library needs costly renovations to advance its mission. The graphic theme for The Pratt Campaign for Central Library Renovations originates from the historic ironwork in the building’s iconic entrance. Significant for its street level location, this welcoming architectural gesture was pioneering for its time. It is a distinguishing feature of the library and a metaphor for its culture and spirit.
