Night in the Stacks

Join us for an evening of dancing, drinks and revelry at Night in the Stacks, the annual fundraiser hosted by the Chicago Public Library Foundation Junior Board and Chicago Public Library.

For one night only, we throw all the library rules out the window with a rocking party in the Harold Washington Library Center’s Winter Garden!

We’ll be celebrating curiosity in all of its forms by transporting guests to the “Garden of the Curious” where everything isn’t always what it appears to be. We’re featuring delectable food and drinks, an off the hook DJ, interactive photo booth, and a whimsical yet modern theme that feels like you’ve traveled to wonderland.

Proceeds from the event help teach the next generation of Chicago leaders by benefiting the Chicago Public Library Foundation and supporting Library programs, including the Maker Lab, Summer Learning Challenge, CyberNavigator computer tutors, and many more innovative programs.

In 2016, Night in the Stacks raised $175,000 to support programs at Chicago Public Library!
