Join us for an evening of food, fellowship, and fundraising in support of the Institute Library, New Haven's oldest independent lending library and one of the last remaining membership libraries in North America.
This special evening includes dinner at a historic 9th Square restaurant of your choice in the company of a New Haven area author. Restaurant options include 9th Note, Bentara, Miso, Nini's House of Tapas, and Thali.
To learn more about these options and to view the list of author-guests at each restaurant, please visit institutelibrary.org/bookplates.
Dessert, coffee and tea, cocktails, and unique programming will follow at the Institute Library, including a performance by the energetic and improvisational Dr. Caterwaul's Cadre of Clairvoyant Claptraps. They make the old seem new again, and the new seem like it's always been around.
Attendees also receive a special commemorative book plate created by a New Haven area artist.

The Institute Library, New Haven’s oldest independent literary institution and one of America’s last remaining membership libraries, was founded in 1826 by eight young working men dedicated to "mutual assistance in the attainment of useful knowledge." Coeducational since 1835, the library flourished for decades as the heart of democratic intellectual life in New Haven, offering lectures, literature, debates, and classes to men and women from a wide range of social and educational backgrounds.
In 2011, the library formally renewed its commitment to the cultural life of New Haven with expanded space and hours, community partnerships, and a wide range of new events and programs. To learn more, please call or EMAIL today!
