About the Evening's Entertainment


*Gatsby Gala Update*

After much careful consideration and conversation with city officials, vendors, and library staff, we have decided to postpone tomorrow's Gatsby Gala as a response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Public Libraries have long sought to bring communities together, encourage lifelong learning, and be a space of respite and safety for everyone. In that spirit, we want to do our part to protect the people who protect these values. We are working with our incredible vendors to find a time to reschedule and look forward to celebrating the library and our community at that time. If you've already purchased your tickets, know that it will still count as a donation toward our Teen Space renovation and we'll look forward to seeing you at our rescheduled event. If you haven't bought tickets yet, this is great news and you can remedy that just as soon as we know more! Keep an eye out for updated information and plan mark your calendars accordingly.

Tickets $50/ea

$60 at door

As the Sun Prairie Public Library Foundation celebrates over 20 years in support of the Sun Prairie Public Library, we hope you will join us in making 2020 our most successful year yet!

Inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel The Great Gatsby, join us for a journey back to the roaring 1920's! The event will be a night of celebration and entertainment, with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, an auction, and a jazzy performance by the Gatsby Gang.


Funds raised at the Gatsby Gala are used to support the Sun Prairie Public Library. Past support has funded projects such as the Teen Space and Welcome Area renovations, Hoopla digital services, Dream Bus Bookmobile services, and the Live Music Series.

Please consider attending this fabulous event, and helping to keep the Sun Prairie Library a vibrant staple of the Sun Prairie community.


If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor for the event, please contact Svetha Hetzler, Library Director at 608-825-0900 or by email at shetzler@sunlib.org.


Due to space limitations at our venue, child care will not be offered this year.
