The Lit Gala


The Lit Gala took place on April 27, 2023 and celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the Montclair Public Library Foundation.

Jennifer Dorr-Moon and David Jones were honored at the event as co-founders of the library’s signature Open Book / Open Mind program, which brings together high-profile authors and expert conversation partners for in-depth discussion about their work.

More than 200 guests raised nearly $200,000 in support of the Montclair Public Library!
