ONE NIGHT ONLY: PARTY AT THE LIBRARY
We had a great time Letting Loose at Johnson County Library Foundation’s signature annual event:
Library Lets Loose!
This festive, lively, after-hours celebration and fundraiser for Library Lovers at Central Resource Library was held on September 17, 2022.
Meet Our 2022 Honorary Hosts
Senia and Will Shields!
Senia and Will are an amazing couple that has made a lasting philanthropic impact in Kansas City. They first came to KC in 1993 for Will to take a job with the KC Chiefs that landed him in the NFL Hall of Fame. During the same year, they established the Will to Succeed Foundation.
We are thrilled with their enthusiastic support – and after two years of celebrating virtually, we were so excited to see you at the Library in person.
⭐ We started the party with a jazzy welcome of live music.
⭐ Enjoyed cocktails and dug into delicious bites from local restaurants.
⭐ Explored the Library in a scavenger hunt and won special prizes.
⭐ Had tons of fun with Kansas City’s favorite DJ Stann and danced the evening away.
⭐ You made a difference for your Library as a library lover who lets loose!
