Here are the details for the next Chicago Deskset event:
Friends of the Chicago Deskset,
Because of your support, the first event at The Grafton Pub was a huge success. Everyone involved had a great time! The book drive for incarcerated teens collected over 350 books for residents at the Juvenile Temporary Detention Center. We also had the opportunity to meet colleagues and plant seeds for future Deskset events.
Chicago Deskset’s goals of promoting civic librarianship and networking opportunities through charitable events could not be successful without the overwhelming support that you continue to contribute. Our focus on developing a local community of librarians, bibliophiles, and other supporters is rewarding and fun.
Our thanks goes out to all of the people who have shown support by attending the first event, as well as people who have written the numerous emails which we have received gearing up for the next event.
The next Chicago Deskset event is scheduled for:
Sunday, May 23 at 6:30pm
Clark Street Ale House
742 North Clark Street
Chicago, IL 60654
This event will benefit a local organization called Open Books. Please bring $5 (or more!) to donate to the charity. You can make personal checks out to Open Books or just bring cash.
We will also be recruiting people for Graphic design, Charity liaisons and Professional development coordinators. These opportunities were listed on the survey at our last event.
