After Hours 2017

We are thrilled to announce a special “Canada 150 edition” of our popular After Hours @ The Library fundraiser. This year, we have invited 4 beloved Canadian writers to attend our fundraiser for an evening of conversation, food, drink, live music and prizes.

Join us on Friday, November 17th from 7:00 – 9:30pm as we welcome Ian Hamilton, Donna-Marie Pye, Carrie Snyder and Andrew Pyper to the Waterloo Public Library.

Guests can mingle over a glass of wine, indulge in delicious canapés and sweets from local restaurants, enjoy the sound of the Andriy Tykhonov & Robin Habermehl Duo, and get social. Our panel of authors will be chatting with guests, signing books and answering questions in a relaxed atmosphere.

Tickets are $50 (includes 1 drink ticket and hors d’oeuvres)

Buy your tickets online or at your favourite WPL location.

Funds raised go towards expanding our current Adult and Children’s Program offerings.

Thank you to our media partner, The Waterloo Region Record, and food station sponsors e.v.o. kitchen, Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria, Little Mushroom Catering, Just Love Pie, Winnie’s Gluten-free Kitchen and Bhima’s Warung.
