Night in the Stacks

Welcome to Night in the Stacks, the Associate Board’s lively celebration of the one and only Chicago Public Library!

Join us on Friday, April 5, 2019 for an evening of dancing, drinks and revelry at Night in the Stacks, the annual fundraiser hosted by the Chicago Public Library Foundation Associate Board and Chicago Public Library.

For one night only, all the library rules are retired for a rocking party in the Harold Washington Library Center’s Winter Garden!

This year’s science fiction themed event blasts off from One Book, One Chicago’s 2018-19 selection Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.

Night in the Stacks features delectable food and drinks, galactic DJ, interactive photo booth, and an electric theme that is sure to entertain.

Proceeds from the event foster the dreams of Chicago’s future leaders by supporting lifelong learning at Chicago Public Library through programs like the Maker Lab, Teacher in the Library, Summer Learning Challenge, CyberNavigator computer tutors, and many more resources that transform lives – not into androids, just in general.

Tickets: $125
Raffle Tickets (sales open March 1): 1/$25, 3/$60, 8/$100
