Night in the Stacks

Each spring our Associate Board hosts Night in the Stacks, a lively party in the library to celebrate one of Chicago’s greatest treasures—the Chicago Public Library.

Night in the Stacks offers an evening under the magnificent glass dome in the Harold Washington Library’s Winter Garden with Chicago’s up and coming young professionals and library supporters.

The event includes food and drinks, dancing, and interactive photo booth. It might be the library, but you can laugh loudly, eat, drink and dance the night away without getting thrown out.

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