About Us

About Us

We’re a diverse group of cosmopolitans who seek to raise awareness of the Enoch Pratt Free Library as a vital part of Baltimore’s identity. Through bold, innovative programs and outreach efforts, the group provides a venue for emerging creative thinkers who want to establish a lifeline between their library, their city, and their communities.

The Pratt Contemporaries programming also extends outside of the Library to offer members the experience of Baltimore’s cultural life in the community at large.
