How about a tour of the Pratt?

Cheryl provided a great overview of the Enoch Pratt Library . Doesn't that make you want to visit? Luckily, the Maryland Chapter of SLA has organized a tour.

Linda H e-mailed me the information that's also available in the personal planner:

Enoch Pratt Library Tour
Thurs June 15, 2006
9:45am to 12pm

Take a tour of the Enoch Pratt Free Library Central Library/State Library Resource Center. Participants will be introduced to the unusual role that Pratt plays as public library, state library agency, and as an accessible research level collection to serious library users. The tour will focus on departments that provide a unique role to customers from all age groups across Maryland and a "behind the scenes" look at the treasures one will find in the Pratt collections. In addition, the beautiful and important architectural appointments of the magnificent Central Building and the new Annex will be noted and discussed. The cost of the tour covers round trip bus transportation to and from the library. A continental breakfast will also be provided. Lunch not included. Bus starts boarding at 9:30 am at the Baltimore Convention Center, Pratt St entrance, departing at 9:45 am. To purchase tickets, complete a Tour registration form found on the Conference website.
