Stories A La Cart

Did you know Enoch Pratt gave over a million dollars in 1882 to set up a library for all Baltimoreans? Did you know the Library was one of the first to provide mobile libraries to its communities…on a horse-drawn wagon? Or that Edgar Allan Poe won his first short story contest right around the corner from the Central Library? 

Learn about these stories and many more at the Cart in Central Hall, through hands-on activities, and the art, artifacts and books from Special Collections.
