Toronto Public Library Events: The 10th Annual Book Lover's Ball

The Book Lover's Ball - 10th Anniversary
Thursday, February 5, 2015

Reserve your tickets for the Book Lover's Ball, a swanky bowtie gala and after-party fundraiser supporting the Toronto Public Library Foundation. For the 10th anniversary event, enjoy an exciting evening mingling with other literature lovers at the Toronto Reference Library. CBC host Gill Deacon will keep the party going at Book Lover's Ball After Dark. Experience nighttime in the library, strolling through the extensive stacks collections and celebrating with famous authors. The gala dinner begins at 6 p.m., the spirited after-party at 9 p.m.

Biz Bash Magazine has recognized the annual Ball as a Top 100 Toronto event. The Book Lover's Ball has also won four international and national event awards, including the Canadian Events Industry Award for Most Outstanding Event. Now you can take part in this memorable evening while you support a wonderful cause. Stars of the local literary world and avid readers alike will assemble in this sprawling 416,000+ square foot space.

After generous donor support, the building has been largely revitalized as an architecturally beautiful building and popular attraction. The Toronto Public Library spans 100 branches that make books, magazines and learning materials available throughout Ontario's capital, including the world-class University of Toronto. Enjoy novel-themed entertainment, reception cocktails and inspired Hors d'oeuvres prepared by a celebrity chef. It's an event for anyone who has ever stayed up late to finish a page-turner or reread a classic. 

If you are attending the gala from out of town, book your reservations at The Yorkville Royal Sonesta Hotel for a luxurious stay in the heart of downtown. Treat yourself to luxury accommodations with thoughtful amenities as you prepare to make your grand entrance on the red carpet among celebrity guests and top Canadian entertainers. Buy tickets here:
