By sponsoring Opus & Olives, our biggest, most visible fundraising event, you are helping us make an impact in your community and beyond. Your partnership supports early literacy, workforce development, and lifelong learning, for individuals of every age, ethnicity, and socioeconomic background.

Entertain and Enjoy

This lively and elegant evening features more than just fabulous food, drink, and conversation. Opus & Olives is a celebration of the transformative power of the written word. Each year we host five best-selling authors that deliver engaging presentations with personal stories about their work, their inspiration, and the importance of libraries on their journey.

Now in its fourteenth year, Opus & Olives is recognized nationally as one of the premier literary and social events of the year. Whether you’re entertaining clients or mingling with Twin Cities leaders, you’ll find an audience of smart, savvy, influential Minnesotans.
