Thank you for making Black, White & REaD Anniversary Affair such a success.


It was truly a festive evening with more than 400 guests and six nationally recognized authors in attendance. As guests mixed and mingled to the sounds of The Mike Petrone Band and other musical entertainment, Cleveland Public Library itself was truly the highlight. From its renowned collection to its hallowed halls, we couldn’t have been more proud of how it dazzled a city for the evening.


We are so very pleased to be able to honor two dedicated individuals who have truly made an impact on Cleveland Public Library and the Cleveland Public Library Foundation: Thomas Corrigan and Robert (Bob) Pincus. We could not think of more fitting people to receive the inaugural 2019 William Howard Brett Award and the 2019 Robert Pincus Outstanding Service Award respectively.


Additionally, we are proud to announce that we have raised over $7,000 towards a newly established Transportation Fund to help school children enjoy quality-rich Library programming.


Once again, thank you for supporting the Library. We could not do it without you.

Thank you to our sponsors!
