Over the past 35 years, the San José Public Library Foundation has raised more than $35 million to support the San José Public Library, our community's lifelong learning hub. We have worked very hard to ensure that all members of our culturally-diverse community - from the very young to the very old - have equal access to places where they can learn, create, collaborate, innovate and explore.

To celebrate this milestone and impact, we invite you to join us for a very special birthday party on Thursday, October 20, 2022 from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM. Guests will enjoy a whimsical Alice in Wonderland-themed evening with musical entertainment, curated experience stations, cocktails, food, a live auction and a raffle.

Admission: $135 per ticket through September 10. $200 after September 10.

Thank you for understanding that this event is for adults 21 and older.
