Library Literati

Literati are traditionally defined as well-educated literary people; intellectuals who are interested in literature; those who love, read, and comment on literature. Along with loving literature, our Library Literati group consists of people who also like to have fun while supporting the Library!

TCPL Foundation Library Literati are special supporters who enjoy lively social events that benefit TCPL. Our first Library Literati event was our massively popular Library Speakeasy held on October 11, 2019.

Library Literati

Virtual Trivia Night

Friday, October 9th at 7:00PM

Our first-ever Library Literati Virtual Trivia Night Event was a blast! There were incredible costumes, punny questions and answers, lots of laughs and cheering, and, of course, a few technical difficulties. Everyone who came out supported TCPL while they were having fun with friends and family. Trivia Master Bob Proehl kept things rolling along and provided questions that really kept people on their toes. Thanks to Bob, and to all our participants--they are now Library Literati!


On October 11, 2019 the Tompkins County Public Library Foundation hosted a Speakeasy fundraiser as part of our Library Literati programs.  Check out the video below for highlights from the event!
