AN UPDATE ABOUT BIBLIO BASH
The wait is (almost) over!
Mark your calendars for an unforgettable night at Biblio Bash 2022, hosted at the Toronto Reference Library
Like many charities, not being able to host our annual gala for the past two years tremendously impacted the funds we allocate annually to the Library. So, we’re incredibly excited to announce that Biblio Bash is coming back with even more ways to celebrate the world’s busiest public library system!
Join us on April 7, 2022 for our black-tie dinner in the stacks and mingle with Canada’s top authors – all in support of Toronto Public Library.
Stay tuned for more information in the coming months.
LIBRARIES MATTER, NOW MORE THAN EVER
When the pandemic hit, Toronto Public Library immediately stepped up to help. Our spaces may have been closed for months, but the team at TPL was never busier – delivering virtual programs, providing curbside service, turning branches into food banks and connecting with the community in many positive and creative ways.
As the pandemic continues to impact so many vulnerable residents in our city, the need to invest in the Library is as essential as ever. Since Biblio Bash’s inception in 2017, our guests and sponsors have helped raise over $2 million for Toronto Public Library’s highest priority needs. We look forward to sharing more updates and welcoming our loyal supporters back next year.
