Taste of the Town


Like, oh my gosh! Thanks for joining us for our '80s party! We rocked out at the library after hours on Saturday, April 27 at the Cockeysville Branch for A Totally '80s Taste of the Town!

Guests sampled food from local restaurants, enjoyed wine and craft beer from B.C. Brewery, and bid on an exciting and eclectic assortment of items, experiences, original works of art in our silent auction. Everyone danced to the hit tunes from the award-winning '80s cover band The New Romance, and everyone looked totally radical in their '80s fashions.

All proceeds support the Foundation's mission to provide additional resources to enrich the library’s commitment to empower the citizens of Baltimore County to explore, learn, create and connect.

We're already looking forward to next year!
