Come one, come all and start off National Library Week with the very first meeting of the Chicago Deskset! We are getting together to meet up, hang out and hold a book drive for incarcerated teens in the Chicago area. The Juvenile Temporary Detention Center at Ogden and Damen is looking for age appropriate, paperback donations. (examples: Harry Potter books, Twilight Series, Percy Jackson books, etc.) Here is a breakdown:
Where: The Grafton Pub and Grill (Western stop, Brown Line and there is also ample street parking and a paid lot across the street)
When: April 10th, 2010 3:00pm-5:00pm
What to bring: one (or more!) age appropriate paperback book, ideas of future charities/fundraisers you would like to support
Who is invited: check out our About Us page for details but just about everyone! Library workers, students, book lovers, friends, family! If you are interested in our mission, then you are invited!
We’ll also be raffling off a gift certificate to Unabridged Bookstore, mingling and just getting together to decide where this group will go next!
