BALTIMORE — The Enoch Pratt Free Library will begin offering appointment-only computer use at 3 locations starting November 4.

A limited number of computer stations will be available at the Central Library, Southeast Anchor Library, and the Pennsylvania Avenue branch. Customers can sign up for a 45 minute appointment by calling one of the three locations:

  • Central Library [Monday - Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.] - 400 Cathedral St.
  • Southeast Anchor Library [Monday - Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (every other Saturday)] - 3601 Eastern Ave
  • Pennsylvania Ave. Branch [Monday - Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (every other Saturday)] - 1531 W. North Ave

A small number of walk-in customers will also be accepted. Customers entering a Pratt building will have their temperatures checked and be required to wear a mask or face covering. Anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 will not be admitted.

Each computer station will be spread six feet apart. The keyboard and mouse will have protective covers and each work station will be disinfected in between appointments.

“We know many of our customers rely on the Pratt for our computers to connect to the internet,” says Pratt Library President & CEO Heidi Daniel. “Connectivity is important to help people find jobs, apply for unemployment, connect with family members, to complete educational work, and so much more.”

Customers can begin calling to book November appointments on October 26. A video with a special Computer Appointment guest helps customers walk through the process.
