You're invited to our first-ever Borrowers (un)Ball!

By Shannon G RSS Thu, October 22, 2009

Give your dancing shoes a night off and join Library lovers across the city on Saturday, November 7th in a celebration of literacy and the vital role the Free Library of Philadelphia plays in our community! In lieu of our annual gala, we are hosting the first-ever Borrowers (un)Ball, which invites “guests” to support the Library without leaving home! This year, you can purchase an (un)ticket and curl up with a great book in the coziest corner of your home—by cutting the costs of an elegant gala, we are able to ensure that the majority of proceeds directly benefit Library programs and services!

So why not contribute what you would typically spend on an evening out on the town? Instead of spending money on dinner and drinks, you can help support services like our after-school programs and literacy training… all while unwinding in your pajamas and getting lost in the pages of a bestseller, a classic tome, or whatever you prefer!

For information on how to donate, click here. Happy reading!

I will be reading The Apprentice: My Life in the Kitchen by Jaques Pepin. My interest in his career was renewed with Julie Powell's Julie and Julia.
