On February 6, 2014, the ninth annual Book Lover’s Ball brought together over 500 book lovers with Canada’s top literary talent at an unforgettable black tie affair in support of Toronto Public Library – one of the busiest urban public library systems in the world.
It was an unforgettable evening, hosted at The Fairmont Royal York. The festivities included a delectable dinner inspired by Chef Lynn Crawford and a spectacular show based on featured novels brought to life through fashion, music and dance. We raised over $25,000 through the auction and $58,000 through the Adopt -a-Branch program, including a generous $25,000 matching donation from TD Bank Group.
Funds raised through The Book Lover’s Ball go to the Toronto Public Library Foundation to help Toronto’s Library grow a city of readers, develop a city of learners and create a city of innovators.
