It’s Go-Time for Library Lets Loose!

The Central Library is set!  We are ready for this  festive event with experiences, entertainment, food, drink and fun ways to donate spread throughout the library — all evening long!

Set for Saturday, September 29 from 6 – 10 pm at the Central Resource Library, it’s our signature fundraising event featuring live music, food, drink, silent auction and interactive experiences. Tickets and sponsorships are still available online or at the door.

And, no need to wait for the event night, our silent auction is currently live online! You can bid on several stunning original pieces of art and jewelry, many of which are currently on display at the Central Resource Library. Simply go online to view these works and place your bid, or simply enter the “Buy it now” price. A percentage of each sale will benefit the Foundation thanks to our partners with GUILDit.

Other interactive experiences include hands-on activities in the Black and Veatch MakerSpace, robot drawing and paintings, literary performances by local actors, and trivia contests. Creative food and drink pairings will be served throughout the evening  – including a signature cocktail!

If you haven’t visited the Library in a while or, if you’re a frequent visitor, it’s a great way to see the Library in a whole new light. And, you’ll help us contribute to the Library’s important collections and programming.  We hope to see you there!
