In the Stacks After Dark

Hosted by the Emerging Leaders, young Bostonians dedicated to supporting the Boston Public Library’s crucial role in the city, Night in the Stacks is the only chance to visit the Library after dark.

Grab your friends, co-workers, and family members for a night of dancing and socializing with fellow library lovers from across the city.

The Next Best Seller

If you are looking to mix up your Friday night routine, meet new people, and enjoy a premier space, look no further. There will be cocktails, food, raffles, and music, all taking place in the Library’s historic McKim Building. 

The evening is both a celebration of the Boston Public Library and a fundraiser to help catapult the Library to new heights of innovation and achievement. Your ticket purchase helps support programs, services, and collections.
