TOUCH where Community and Inspiration Meet

abstract:TOUCH: definition 1. the act of connecting physically and emotionally 2. the interface used on computers, mobile devices, iPads and modern technology 3. the name of the Vancouver Public Library Foundation's first fundraiser event in over a decade taking place October 4th in the Atrium space of the Central library, 350 West Georgia, Vancouver.

TOUCH "where inspiration and community meet" is the tagline for the event is designed to raise awareness and funds for the VPL's new technology-rich space called, The Inspiration Lab. Slated to open on the 3rd floor of the central library in 2014 the foundation hopes to raise $500,000 by attracting a new generation of library advocates - through both our Downtown and Yaletown corporate neighbours, and through local residents who we call "the young Digerati" of Vancouver. These are people who already live, eat and breath technology, work in technology rich sectors, who share a commitment to life-long learning and the desire to help our community become the technology leaders and stakeholders of tomorrow.

For more information check out the VPLFoundation website with pages on Committee | Creative | Sponsors | Tickets. Doors open at 8pm for a VIP reception where people can mingle with our installation artists, meet the City Librarian, Sandra Singh. BC Minister of Technology, Honourable Andrew Wilkinson will be attending. There are 5 noted Vancouverites who have have agreed to participate in a mentor program - check out details on our Silent Auction Catalogue. We've gathered loads of items for the tech-minded person and fun get-a-ways and dining experiences.
