Mardi Gras 2017

Thank you to our sponsors, supporters, and attendees who made this year’s celebration a tremendous success! Mardi Gras, the New Haven Free Public Library’s signature event, sustains the library throughout the year, complementing our city funding and supporting the growth and development of our collections, crucial community programs and services, and fueling strategic projects and priorities. Thank you for your generosity!
