Celebrate Banned Books Week and Support the

Erie Regional Library Foundation at the 1st Annual Banned Book Ball! 

Event Sponsors:

Sign up here and receive your very own Banned Book Tote when you make a $50 donation. Each tote comes with a banned book and local goodies, including flavored popcorn from PopLuck, a cake pop from Icing on the Lake, coffee coupons from Pressed, chocolate from Romolo’s, coupons for Art’s Bakery, and more!

Your Banned Book Tote will be ready for pickup at the Foundation’s Banned Book Jeopardy event on Saturday, October 2nd at 1 pm at the Hirt Auditorium (connected to Blasco Memorial Library). Your $50 donation saves you a slot to test your banned book knowledge and win awesome prizes! Attendees are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite literary characters. This event is family-friendly, and children in attendance are invited to compete in free rounds of bingo! 

Interested in just coming to play Jeopardy without the $50 donation? Donations of $10 will be accepted at the door. Donors who do not attend the event will be contacted by the Library to make arrangements for the pick-up of their tote. 

Want to enjoy the fun at home? With a $5 donation, donors will receive a take-home Murder Mystery Kit, which can also be reserved on our sign up page. All proceeds from the Banned Book Ball will benefit the Erie Regional Library Foundation.
