Join us for Guelph Public Library's 2nd annual Evening for Book Lovers - Red Carpet Edition proudly presented by Meridian! Held at the beautiful Hanlon Convention Centre, this highly anticipated event will take place on Saturday February 8th, 2014.
Book Lovers will be treated to a Keynote address by the renowned Judy Croon - comedian, motivational speaker, radio host, and author! Attendees will also enjoy a fabulous four course dinner, lots of contests and prizes, silent auction festivities, and fun for everyone as we celebrate award winning entertainment and an appreciation for books and movies! Guests are encouraged to walk the red carpet dressed as their favourite movie or book character, come as film or book critics, or even paparazzi! Despite wicked weather, thanks to the generosity of our guests, sponsors, and donors, last year's event was a tremendous success, raising over $13,000 for this vital community organization - helping to support GPL's quest for a new Main Library and other library initiatives, programming, and resources. With this year's exciting event, we hope to exceed last year's target and further provide access to lifelong literacy and invaluable library resources for our community!
Tickets can be purchased by clicking the link below or by visiting any library location until January 26th. Tax receipts for the eligible portion will be provided at the event. Invite your friends, neighbours, co-workers, book club members, and anyone interested in a wonderful night out for a great cause!
