Library Lions is The New York Public Library's most important annual event and one of the most anticipated dinners on New York City's social calendar. This year—at a time when Library usage has skyrocketed—we are expanding on our Library Lions tradition. Along with the noted luminaries we are recognizing tonight—Annie Prolux, Pulitzer Prizewinning author of The Shipping News and "Brokeback Mountain" and Hilary Knight, beloved illustrator of the Eloise children's books—we are honoring three members of the Library's extraordinary staff, heroes on the front lines who make a difference in the everyday lives of New Yorkers.
