The Toronto Public Library will transform its Bloordale branch into a spooky glam Halloween party on Saturday October 31st for Hush Hush! Guests can enjoy palm readings, fortune telling, music by DJ Odario and delicious eats from Matt Basile from Fidel Gastro. Guests are encouraged to dress up in costume, or to dress “ghoulishly chic.”
Proceeds raised from this party will support the Toronto Public Library’s Young Voices program. The best part is that this event is part of the TPL’s New Collection.

New Collection is Toronto Public Library Foundations’ young patrons group exclusively for those 19- 45. The group hosts special events and unique experiences, and connect members with authors and artists. Sounds cool? Join or learn more about New Collection at tplfoundation.ca/new-collection
