On November 14, I joined Enoch Pratt Free Library Director, Dr. Carla Hayden, and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake to launch Baltimore’s efforts to bring e-books and e-readers to all the branches of the Enoch Pratt Free Library System. The e-book initiative created thanks to the generosity of the Weinberg Foundation.
Dr. Hayden was able to use a $350,000 gift from the Weinberg Foundation to purchase some e-readers and books for the people of Baltimore to try. At the announcement, Mayor Rawlings Blake was able to borrow a book on her iPhone during the announcement!
