Join us for the largest Library party of the year, the 6th Annual Book Drop Bash, celebrating the literary and cultural life of Los Angeles!
On this one night per year, Members of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles join authors from the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books at the historic Central Library after dark.
Bring a book with you and swap it out for a new one to take home; enjoy complimentary snacks, desserts, local brews, and delicious coffee while listening to the sounds of the live KCRW DJ; participate in some tequila tasting; and get home safely by taking a Lyft with a discount code!
RSVP now to throw all of the Library rules out of the window and celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles. Come for the legendary Book Swap, stay for the literary libations!
This event fills up every year, so be sure to RSVP early!
