The Enoch Pratt Free Library, the nation's first free library system, opened its doors in 1886, the result of the generosity and imagination of businessman and philanthropist Enoch Pratt. Mr. Pratt envisioned a public library where "races, ages, and socio-economic classes mingled and people could educate themselves – without cost," and his passionate belief continues to guide the organization. Today's Pratt Library – Baltimore's public library and the Maryland State Library Resource Center – consists of the Central Library, an anchor library, 20 branches, two bookmobiles, a jail library, Pratt Centers for Technology Training, and the Regional Information Center. The Library's mission is to provide equal access to information and services that support, empower, and enrich all who pursue knowledge, education, cultural enrichment, and lifelong learning.
