Booklovers Ball Returns

Booklovers Ball 2021, Friday, September 10, at 6:00 p.m., presented by GH Phipps.

It’s time to bloom again! Mark your calendars for the return of the fan-favorite, the Booklovers Ball! Join us on Friday, September 10, at 6:00 p.m., for the 24th Annual Booklovers Ball: Booklovers in Bloom, presented by GH Phipps. In light of the exciting Central Library renovation, this year’s Ball will be held at the Denver Botanic Gardens and will incorporate the signature features of the Booklovers Ball, such as specialty cocktails, clever theming, and a library-loving crowd, all in spacious outdoor gardens. 

“The Booklovers Ball is a community celebration of Denver's world-class library system, and we’re excited to be back in person in a safe and beautiful outdoor venue,” says Ball Co-Chair Brittany Morris-Saunders. Co-Chair Ron Tomassi adds, “This event is one of my absolute favorites. I always know we’ll have a great time, and the funds support all that DPL does for our community.” 

Availability is limited this year, so don’t miss your chance to demonstrate your love for Denver Public Library while enjoying an exclusive evening full of gourmet food, fun, and a few library surprises! For more information and to purchase tickets or sponsorships, please visit
