Mask or Aid for the Stacks is the first ever non-event
fundraiser for the Grosse Pointe Public Library.
While the Covid-19 pandemic has put a stop to our ability
to gather and celebrate in person, it has not halted the
desire to support and provide for the Library. Please
remain safe at home and consider making an impact
still with your ticket purchase. 100% of every dollar
will support the installation of more modern and
efficient LED lighting at the Ewald Branch. Your
generosity will light up the Library
for generations!

Mask or Aid for the Stacks

If you have walked or driven past the Grosse Pointe Public Library’s Central branch lately, you will have noticed quite a change! Accessibility, function, and aesthetics have all been vastly improved by the Central Plaza project; a project supported by the generous donors and members of the Friends and Foundation of the Grosse Pointe Public Library.

The Friends and Foundation’s annual fundraiser, Masquerade for the Stacks 2019, raised the requisite funds to build the new ADA compliant ramp at Central in 2020. The previous year’s Masquerade helped provide the Library with the delivery van you’ve no doubt seen cruising around town. Each year brings a new opportunity for the community to rally behind a project or upgrade to our constantly improving library system.

While the Covid-19 pandemic has put a stop to our ability to gather in person at another fantastic Masquerade, it has not halted the desire to support and provide for the Library. This year the Friends and Foundation invite the community to support Mask or Aid for the Stacks – a non-event fundraiser that will allow you to remain safe at home, save money on a babysitter, and not fret over what to wear! Your ticket purchase will be entirely tax deductible as allowed by law.

The funds provided this year will support the lighting project at the Ewald branch where more modern and efficient LED light fixtures will replace the 12-year-old less efficient lighting. The Grosse Pointe Library Foundation supported a similar lighting project at Central in 2018, replacing old fixtures and updating to more efficient LED technology. This investment has proven to be a tremendous savings for the Library.
