Walk Through the Garden of the Curious During This Year’s Night in the Stacks Celebration

Join us on Friday, March 31st, for this year’s annual Night in the Stacks.


We invite you to join us on Friday, March 31st, for this year’s annual Night in the Stacks event! We will be celebrating in the Harold Washington Library’s Winter Garden – fitting for this year’s theme of “Garden of the Curious.”
The annual Night in the Stacks fundraiser is organized by the Chicago Public Library Foundation’s Junior Board, and we thank them for continuing to delight us year over year with an exciting theme and energetic atmosphere in the Library!
We extend a heartfelt thank you to our event sponsors who are #DedicatedtotheCurious: Chicago Public Library, BMO Harris Bank, Baker Tilly, Clarity Partners, Ernst & Young,  Jim Donnelley, Spark Cremin & Paul Dykstra, Katz & Stefani, Linda Johnson Rice, and Lydia Fu Illustration & Design.
The evening will be full of garden-themed cocktails, delectable food stations and dancing to music courtesy of DJ Ewin Konsept, who joins us every year to turn up the party!
It’s always a dancing affair to remember, and this year will be no different. You can make sure to capture the evenings’ memories at the interactive photo booth, courtesy of Smilebooth.
We want to say thank you to our partners for contributing their services to the evening’s festivities: HMR, Jewel Events Catering, Southern Wine & Spirits, Miller Coor, Sound Investments, Smilebooth, RR Donnelley, and DJ Ewin Konsept.
