    The New York Public Library's Young Lions Disco Party took place last night at Library Lions and was a total blowout success with over 650 tickets sold.  The dancing, dessert, and drinks began at 9:00, and the Literary Lion made quite a hit on the dance floor well into the early morning.  Around 11pm, the music switched from the Bee Gees and other disco favorites to a club centric play list whereby guests started to get down.  The copious amount of drinks, dancing, and beautiful attendees made it quite the night in the Big Apple.

    The Young Lions Dance Chairmen include Nicholas T. Brown, Claire Danes, Amanda Hearst, Michael Hess, Hudson Morgan, and Andrea L. Olshan.
