Books Through Bars Party

This Saturday at Enid’s:

Books Through Bars moved, and we’re having a party to get us back on

our feet! It features awesome librarians and excellent music, so

you’d best be there.

The Desk Set (a group of young librarians who throw dope parties to

raise money for organizations promoting literacy) are hosting a party

at Enid’s in Williamsburg to pay for the postage we need to get back

to sending books to people incarcerated all across America.

After our old space was damaged by fire, Books Through Bars moved to

our new home in Freebird Bookstore, and we’ve built up a big backlog

of packages that need sending and letters that need replies. 100% of

contributions go to either postage or packing supplies, but we’re a

bit behind and need plenty of help.

So, now you know what your Saturday holds: dancing, drinks and librarians.

Books Through Bars benefit with The Desk Set @ Enid’s, 560 Manhattan Avenue in Williamsburg

10pm and on. Suggested Donation at the door.

A Friendly Neighborhood Service Announcement

Pavement tickets go on sale at noon for the Williamsburg Waterfront!
