AN UPDATE ABOUT BIBLIO BASH

August 13, 2020

When we postponed Biblio Bash back in April 2020, we had high hopes we could come together for a celebration this fall. However, it has become increasingly clear that the best decision is to cancel our annual fundraising gala, and look forward to opportunities for 2021. If you have any questions about the gala, please do not hesitate to email Jennifer Le at JLe@tpl.ca.

On behalf of everyone at the TPL Foundation, I extend my sincere thanks to our Biblio Bash Committee, sponsors as well as table and ticket purchasers for your continued commitment to raising vital funds for Toronto Public Library.

Warmest regards,

Jennifer Jones
President, Toronto Public Library Foundation

SUPPORT YOUR LIBRARY

Last year, Biblio Bash raised $755,000 in support of Toronto Public Library. Now more than ever, we need donors to help ensure that the close to 70% of Torontonians who use the Library have access to resources, programs, services and spaces that make for an economically strong and socially resilient city.
