Mardi Gras

The New Haven Free Public Library was the place to be on Fat Tuesday! On Tuesday, March 4, 2014 the New Haven Free Public Library (Ives Main Branch) once again held the Mardi Gras Gala and Silent Auction.  Patrons enjoyed a fabulous evening and supported the NHFPL’s commitment to the New Haven community. Terrific auction items were bid on and everyone feasted on delicious cuisine provided by an extraordinary array of New Haven’s finest restaurants.

The New Haven free Public Library would like to thank our 2014 sponsors:
