Join us in celebrating all things music at this year's Free Library gala! No matter what your vibe–classical, jazz, hip-hop, rhythm and blues–the Free Library has something in its collection to keep your toes tapping. On December 14, from 7:00 p.m. to midnight, the halls of the Parkway Central Library will be filled with the sounds of music!

Some of the event's proceeds will go toward expanding the Library's Instrument Lending Program, now in its third year, and bringing it into select neighborhood libraries. The remainder of the funds raised will support the many programs that make it possible for the Free Library to fulfill its mission to advance literacy, guide learning, and inspire curiosity for Philadelphians of all ages.

We can promise you cuisine prepared as only Jean-Marie Lacroix and his Brûlée team can provide, finger-snapping entertainment, and the satisfaction of knowing you're supporting one of the most vital institutions in Philadelphia!
