Past Saturday, the Toronto Bloor/Gladstone Public Library was transformed into a speakeasy of the prohibition era.
The sign read “closed for violation of National Prohibition Act,” the truth is, a hush-hush party was being held behind the doors.
This Hush Hush Bash, hosted by New Collection, was a fundraiser benefiting the Toronto Public Library Foundation.
Bars, DJ booths, and oyster shucking tables were set up behind the stacks.
A typist composed instant poems; Barrymore furniture snapped photos while guests played and posed on the Barrymore couch; flappers danced to live jazz on the podiums while guests enjoyed delectable bites from Rock Lobster.
If the 4 or 5 main bars wasn’t enough, a secret bar accessible by password was hidden in a corner behind the shelves.
While the library is not being supported by municipal taxes, Hush Hush successfully raised $80,000 for the Toronto Public Library Foundation to help develop a city of readers, learners and creators.
