I have a love for books and libraries with history so before my flight home I took a 30 minute detour to visit this library to see architecture, the decor, and to read up on the history of Enoch Pratt.
We go to the Pratt (Central Branch) nearly every week. The children section in just great with a lovely little fish pond and comfy nooks for reading together. The Young Adult section is also great and the staff is super helpful. There is nothing like a library built in the grand style of the turn of the century. The Rare... 更多
Walking distance from Baltimores Washington Monument, a beautiful old building close to museums, shops, restaurants, hospital and so much more, great place to come in and check out the thousands of books, or just check out the computers for internet usage.

I live very close to this library and always enjoy my visits. I love how it is always busy, full of people from all walks of life. Besides being a beautiful space, there is never a shortage of interesting books to take home!
This library is good if you don't have work that is too technical. The software for computer use is not on the cutting edge. They are still on the Internet Explorer age. Also they do give 5 free print outs. The main bathroom should stay open until the library closes, and the library hire less uptight security. The Cyber Cafe... 更多
I lived just opposite from this Library, I worked two jobs and had really a lot of stress on my back. One of the few things that helped me understand and love US is this amazing place and lovely people who worked there!
