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 Associate Board and Chicago Public Library.

For one night only, all the library rules are meant to be broken for a rocking party in the Harold Washington Library Center Winter Garden!

This year, we’re celebrating the wonder and enchantment found in our favorite works of children’s literature. Step into the world of pure imagination, where lost boys and mad hatters roam, and a simple wardrobe or broomstick can transport you to a whole new world.

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

Proceeds from the event benefit 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.

Tickets: $125

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