Virtual Events Now Available

Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, all Pratt Library in person events are cancelled out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our customers. We will continue to update this page with more information as the situation evolves.

Virtual events are now available online! Browse our virtual events and attend online workshops, writers’ groups, and more from the comfort of your own home.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Lecture: D.O.P.E. (Dedication, Opportunity, Positivity, and Excellence) Dad 101

The panel will display Black Fathers/Father Figures in a light that they have rarely been shown in before, specifically in children's books. The discussion will highlight the abilities of Black Fathers and the super powers they possess: the ability to have a lifelong impact on our children. Featuring: Stephen McGill II, Sherman Barksdale, Kenji Jackson, Glen Mourning.

Books will be available for purchase at a signing after the program.

Free, no registration required. Seating is first come, first serve. Please note that marking interest does not reserve a seat. Parking is free on Park Avenue and Cathedral Street after 6pm. Parking is $5 in the Franklin Street Garage after 5pm.

Re-opening activities are made possible in part by a generous gift from Sandra R. Berman.
