Who are the Pratt Contemporaries?
The Pratt Contemporaries is a diverse group of young cosmopolitans who raise awareness of the Enoch Pratt Free Library and provide financial support for its programs. Through unique events and outreach efforts, the group provides a venue for emerging creative thinkers who want to establish a lifeline between their library, their city, and their communities.
Pratt Contemporaries membership dues, donations, and special events, including the Black & White Party allow the Pratt Contemporaries to make year-end grants that fund child and teen literacy programs and improvements to branch children's departments at the Enoch Pratt Free Library. Since its inception, the Contemporaries have raised over $1 million!
