Librarians to Party Down for a Cause at the Upcoming Biblioball in Brooklyn

This year’s theme is ‘Overdue Romance.’ The literary affair features books, dancing, DJs, a photo booth and a raffle. It will take place on Saturday December 7th at the Bell House in Brooklyn. Proceeds from the benefit go to Literacy for Incarcerated Teens, a non-profit who works to teach incarcerated NYC teens how to read, as well as BOOKlyn Shuttle, a community book bus that delivers books to low and middle income families in North Broothlyn.
