285th Annual Dinner

On November 10, 2016, 150 Library Company shareholders and donors gathered for the opening of the WWI exhibition and our 285th Annual Dinner featuring  Lafayette Professor Donald L. Miller, the best-selling author, expert historian, and documentarian. Highlights from the evening included: performances by the Philadelphia Voices of Pride singing WWI music from the Library Company collection, a presentation by Councilman Mark Squilla recognizing the historical importance of the Library Company, and a special video greeting from internationally-renowned actor and producer Tom Hanks. Thanks to your support, it was a wonderful evening and an amazing opportunity to celebrate our Shareholders. Thank you to all of the sponsors who made the evening a financial success raising almost $30,000 for the Library Company.
