Baltimore's Enoch Pratt Free Library Remains Open Following Civil Unrest after Death of Freddie Gray.
Baseball games, schools, football draft events were closed
All branches of the city’s Enoch Pratt Free Library, however, stayed open and welcoming local residents, media and anyone else who needs to make use of them.
“It’s at times like this that the community needs us,”
Roswell Encina, the library’s director of communications, told MTV News
. “That’s what the library has always been there for, from crises like this to a recession to the aftermath of severe weather. The library has been there. It happened in Ferguson; it’s happening here.”
