Residents defend library branches

April 19, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

More than 100 people -- many of them African-Americans or Orthodox Jews -- turned out last night at the Reisterstown Road branch library in Northwest Baltimore to tell library officials that the branches are essential and should remain open.

It was the third of four public meetings the Enoch Pratt Free Library is holding to get input from the communities on the closing of branches.

The last public library forum will be at 6 tonight at Patterson Park, 158 N. Linwood Ave.
