Ex Libris Volume VII: Beer & Bites

Oct 13, 2017 • 7:00 pm • Central Library • 201 W. Mifflin Street

Madison Public Library Foundation's seventh annual Ex Libris took place Friday, October 13, 2017 at Central Library. This year's fundraiser had a new theme: Beer & Bites. Guests had the opportunity to sample beer from Wisconsin breweries, as well as food from local restaurants and food artisans.

This combination of local food and craft beer made for a one-of-a-kind experience. Additionally, the night featured a DJ, silent auction and "everybody-wins" raffle. With food and drinks entirely donated by participating tasting partners, all proceeds from the night benefitted the Madison Public Library Foundation

Photos from this year's event are now available on Madison Public Library's Flickr page.
