Calling All Secret Agents! The evening will kick-off with a technical briefing from Q, in which participants will receive special information for a 007 James Bond themed scavenger hunt throughout the stacks of the Main Library. The mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to crack clues, solve challenges, and win prizes! The First Place Winner will receive two (2) domestic round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines. Dust off your trench coat or tuxedo: spy attire will be greatly rewarded and documented by the adoring paparazzi. Shaken, not stirred martinis from the open bar, live music, a silent auction and extravagant door prizes will complete the soiree.
Some of our city’s best eateries, including City Greens, Gattuso’s, Liberty Cheesesteaks, Zea Rotisserie & Bar, Tartine, Langenstein’s, Laurel Street Bakery, Messina’s Runway Café, the Munch Factory and Katie’s Restaurant will be serving delicious food throughout the night.
Auction items include artwork by Dr. Bob, 3 custom built Little Free Libraries, a chartered fishing trip for 4, jewelry, resort packages and luxury services galore!
All proceeds from the event will directly support the New Orleans Public Library’s Summer Fun and Reading Program. In 2019, more than 15,000 children, teens and adults enjoyed the benefits the program provided across 15 Orleans Parish library branches. Through the funds raised from this event, the FNOPL will continue to sponsor NOPL events, workshops, and incentives that champion literacy, strengthen communities, and enrich minds.
Proper spy attire encouraged.
