Durham, NC — On Saturday, April 29, 2023, the Durham Library Foundation will host All Booked Up, an after-hours party celebrating the library. Occurring alongside Durham County Library’s Third Annual Library Fest: The Storytelling Edition, All Booked Up will take place at Main Library from 7-10 p.m. The event will feature fantastic food and drink, a DJ, behind the scenes access, library tours, live demonstrations, and more. The Multi-Sensory Environment will be open and demonstrating the features of the space. The Innovation lab will be open with live demonstrations of 3D printers, button making, and more!
