Annual Gala

Brooklyn Public Library's 17th Annual Gala

Thanks to our supporters, the gala raised over $445,000, critical funding that will be used to provide free access to books, DVDs, the internet and other resources to residents throughout the borough. More than 400 supporters gathered at Brooklyn Bowl to celebrate BPL’s work and to honor the award-winning author and essayist Martin Amis; the Chair of Brooklyn Public Library’s Board of Trustees, Anthony Crowell; and the Charles H. Revson Foundation.

We will announce the date of the 18th Annual Gala in the next few months.
