Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, all Pratt Library locations are closed out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our customers. Currently programs and events through April 11 have been cancelled. We will continue to update this page with more information as the situation evolves.
Prattlibrary.org will be kept up to date with further information regarding the closure of our physical locations. While our physical locations are closed, you may still use your Pratt Library Card to access Pratt Digital Library resources, including research materials, downloads, and streaming media for all ages.
