Friday, April 16, 2010

April 16, 2010 was a legendary evening at the Main Library, with two extraordinary events—the 14th Annual Library Laureates Dinner and the first ever Porchlight All Stars party.

Thank you to all who came out to toast the best and the brightest Bay Area authors to this year’s theme—Urban Legends.  The benefit was a huge success and raised over $150,000 for the San Francisco Public Library ‘s education programs.

We would like to extend special thanks to our sponsors-thank you for helping make our premier fundraising event possible!

New This Year!!!  Encore Porchlight All Stars Party

On April 16th, for the first time ever, Friends of the San Francisco Public Library presents the Porchlight All Stars Party—an after-hours party at the library featuring music, stories, good times and more.

Immediately following the 14th Annual Library Laureates gala and dinner, join Porchlight hosts Beth Lisick, Arline Klatte and San Francisco’s legendary personalities for stories around the evening’s theme—“Urban Legends.”

Check out the Main Library at dark, enjoy drinks on the beautiful 6th floor terrace and share tales of folklore and myth at this premier literary party that raises money for the San Francisco Public Library’s education programs.
