Black and White Party, January 28, 2023 - Jekyll and Hyde theme - The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it

Thank you for joining us! This year's theme, inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, transformed the Central Library like never before. We hope you will join us again next year.

Thanks to Our 2023 Sponsors

Proceeds from the Black & White Party directly support the Pratt's children and teen literacy programs. We deeply appreciate the support of all of our sponsors.
