Description

**This event is currently sold out. We will offer tickets at the door, so long as we haven't reached or exceeded capacity in the 6th floor space. Which is to say: There's a chance you can purchase tickets at the door, but we can't guarantee it.**

Escape into a totally awesome slumber-party time-warp on the 6th floor of the Austin Central Library! APL After Dark is an adults-only, themed Friday night where you get to party in your favorite library after closing time.

This time, we're celebrating the slumber parties of childhood with retro board games, classic Nintendo, cootie catchers, MASH, adult beverages, snacks, and BYOVinyl. You'll also hear a short slumber-party comedy set by local comic Amber Bixby starting at 7:45pm, followed by two local storytellers sharing nutty, memorable, raucous slumber party stories. (If you'd like to submit, the deadline is Monday, December 17, at 5:00pm. Submisison guidelines below.) Slumber party attire not required! Tickets can also be purchased at the door.

This event is sponsored by The Library Foundation.
