The Enoch Pratt Free Library is partnering with the Maryland Food Bank in the month of January for Food For Fines.
From January 4 to January 31, donate a canned food item at any Pratt Library location and receive a $1 off any library fine.
There is no limit on the amount of cans that can be donated. For example, 5 cans = $5 off of your library card fines. Canned goods must be unopened and unexpired to qualify. To participate, just drop the cans off at the Circulation Desk of your local Pratt Library branch.
“We are encouraging our library patrons to help fight hunger in the Baltimore area. This campaign helps our neighbors and helps you reduce your library fines,” said Carla D. Hayden, Chief Executive Officer of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. “The holidays are over but the need is still there. Baltimoreans and Marylanders stand by each other and this campaign is a way to continue the holiday spirit into the new year.”
In January 2015, the library collected more than 10,700 pounds of food for the Maryland Food Bank feeding more than 7,000 meals.
“The Food for Fines campaign is an inspiring example of how communities can come together to prioritize hunger,” said Deborah Flateman, President & CEO of the Maryland Food Bank. “It’s a win-win for everyone, and it’s a helpful reminder that hunger is a year-round struggle, one that doesn’t end once the holidays are over.”
Enoch Pratt Free Library
The Enoch Pratt Free Library, the nation’s first free library system, opened its doors in 1886, the result of the generosity and imagination of businessman and philanthropist Enoch Pratt. Mr. Pratt envisioned a public library where “races, ages, and socio-economic classes mingled and people could educate themselves – without cost,” and his passionate belief continues to guide the organization. Today’s Pratt Library – Baltimore’s public library and the Maryland State Library Resource Center – consists of the Central Library, an anchor library, 22 branches, two bookmobiles, Pratt Centers for Technology Training, and the Regional Information Center. The Library’s mission is to provide equal access to information and services that support, empower, and enrich all who pursue knowledge, education, cultural enrichment, and lifelong learning.

Whether it’s a hot date planned with your beau or a girls’ night out, this Valentine’s Day make sure to make a statement with these top five beauty tips. Celebrity makeup artist Jami Svay has worked with Meghan Trainor, Brooklyn Decker, Angie Harmon, among others and top fashion brands Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, Laura Ashley, Perry Ellis, to name a few. She provides tips to create the perfect Valentine’s Day beauty look.
1. Kiss and makeup…
Ditch the traditional “red” lip and go for a more kissable look like a
delicious nude color. Try: Philosophy’s lip shine in Coconut Frosting it
gives a hint of shimmer with a mild sweet taste.
2. Run your fingers through my hair or maybe not…
Loose the hair spray for the night. Nothing is more un-sexy than hard mane.
Touchable, soft hair is always a “do”. Try: Garnier’s Texture Spray for body
and bounce without the crunch.
3. Give it a glow…
For a quick J-Lo glow add a few drops of liquid luminizer to your
moisturizer. Try: Stila’s All Over Shimmer liquid.
4. Got a private beach…
Nothing says red-hot like bronzed skin. Use along the perimeter of your face
& jaw bone for a more realistic application. Also pick a brand that doesn’t
have too much shimmer. Try: Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer
5. It started with a wink…
Seduction begins with a good mascara! Give your eyes a bambi-like fringe
using lash fibers. It coats & builds on the ends of your natural lashes,
giving the appearance of falsies. Try: Loreal’s False Fiber Lash Mascara
Jami Svay (pronounced s-why) believes having your
makeup done is more than just lashes and liner. It’s beauty therapy.
She excels at finding and highlighting a client’s best
feature. “If I can make someone’s day by making them
look good, then so be it,” she says.
The makeup artist and creator of Tastee Cosmetics, a national line of organic lip products, has been in the beauty business for more than 10 years, working in salons, as a cosmetics representative and as a model.
She decided to forgo college dreams of being a fashion designer once she realized that makeup artistry combined her love of color and fine art.
Building on a personal philosophy of “Everyone has something beautiful, just enhance it,” Svay’s impressive client roster belies her versatility. She has worked on a range of celebrities, including Brooklyn Decker and Michael Jordan.
Svay has traveled to New York, Atlanta, Miami and Los Angeles to do makeup on editorial spreads and runway shows.
She has done work for Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, Laura Ashley, Perry Ellis, Essence and Real Simple magazines, among others.
