Inscription
This branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library was built in and opened for use in 1886, one of four given to the city of Baltimore by Enoch Pratt, a great philanthropist of that era. It is the only one of that group still in use as a library. Pratt worked in a reading room nearby and knew many neighborhood people and it appears that the construction of this library was a project dear to his heart.
