At a meeting in Brooklyn last night, fiery city residents shook homemade signs and begged Enoch Pratt Free Library officials to keep their libraries open. The Pratt announced this week that it will close five branches by this summer. The five will be chosen from a list of 11. The endangered branches - which tend to be the smallest, oldest or least used - are located throughout the city. They are: Canton, Clifton, Dundalk, Fells Point, Forest Park, Gardenville, Govans, Highlandtown, Hollins-Payson, Pimlico and Washington Village in Pigtown.

It seems an odd time for books to be flying off a school's library's shelves, but at Halstead Academy, Ethan Pranke and Noah Neverdon can't resist. Asked about popular children's book author Dan Gutman, the two rising fifth-graders retrieved several entries from the author's "My Weird School Daze" series, spread them on a table and offered colorful synopses of such works as "Mrs. Dole Is Out of Control" and "Officer Spence Makes No Sense. " The two aren't in summer school or a school-based camp, but they are among many Baltimore County who take advantage of schools that keep their libraries open during the summer break to encourage youngsters to keep reading.

A $670,000 budget shortfall caused by the dismal economic climate has prompted the Maryland Historical Society to cut hours at its Baltimore museum and library and to eliminate several staff positions, according to the president of its trustee board. In addition, Wednesday was director Robert Rogers' last day with the society, board president Alex G. Fisher said. Rogers' departure is unrelated to the 165-year-old organization's budget problems, according to Fisher. The board will name an interim director until it can conduct a search for a new leader.

Those who look at the construction in the 5100 block of Roland Ave. often stop, stare and ask the same question of the building's workers. When is the library going to reopen? "The curiosity level has been very high," said Carla D. Hayden, executive director of the Enoch Pratt Free Library system. "It's like a Christmas present being unfolded." At noon today, the Roland Park branch will reopen after an 18-month, $5.3 million renovation, marking an end to a major overhaul of the library system for this year.
