Pratt Library gives a peek in their archives

History buffs will take kindly to Pratt Library's "Treasures at the Pratt" board. One popular post was a Valentine poem written by Virginia Poe to Edgar Allan on Feb. 14, 1846. A picture of a typewriter used by H.L. Mencken is a fun find -- and, given the wear, suggests he only used his right thumb to strike the space bar. You can also follow the "What YOU are Reading" board to get book suggestions from Pratt regulars. Find Pratt Library on Pinterest at
