The KCLS Foundation's annual fundraiser, in its 25th year, is the library event of the year. More than 700 community members join together to raise funds for programs and services at the King County Library System. Guests have the opportunity to have books signed by their favorite authors, shop at the pop-up bookstore, enjoy a delicious dinner, and mingle with other book lovers - all to support a great cause. In 2017, the Literary Lions Gala raised nearly $400,000 for KCLS, helping to fund the beloved Summer Reading program. Keynote speaker is basketball great and author Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He is now a New York Times best-selling author who has written 14 books including two recent memoirs – Becoming Kareem for young readers, and Coach Wooden & Me about his lifelong friendship with UCLA coach John Wooden.
