Mardi Gras highlights the Library’s role as a vital source of connection in our community featuring:
- Appearances from local literati
- A conversation with extraordinary poets Toi Derricotte, Cornelius Eady, and Reginald Dwayne Betts
- The Library’s Noah Webster Award presented to Elsie B. Chapman
- And a special announcement about the campaign for the new Stetson Library!
Donations to the New Haven Free Public Library during Mardi Gras provide the digital tools, e-resources, virtual programs, and online learning materials our community relies on, ensuring all New Haven residents have access to the information they need to stay safe, informed, and engaged. Make a gift!
