The Library Party is a unique Duke tradition. For one night only, Perkins and Bostock Libraries throw open their doors for a night of music, food, and un-shushed entertainment. The event is free and open to the entire Duke community. After a year on hiatus as we prepared for the Rubenstein Library renovation, the Library Party is back! Once again, the Libraries are partnering with the Duke Marketing Club to organize this year's event. The theme--"Life is a Cabaret"--is inspired by an upcoming exhibit on 19th- and early-20th-century Parisian cabarets that will be on display in the Perkins Gallery February 19-May 12, with a companion exhibit at the Nasher Museum. Life Is a Cabaret will feature live music, costumes, decorations, food and beverages, and plenty of joi de vivre!
