826 Chicago

Hello fair readers!

Just want to clue you in on a little event going on this Saturday. Here are the details:

Come hang out at the next Chicago Deskset event to raise funds for 826 Chicago!

Date: July 10, 2010 3-5pm.

Location: Goose Island Brewpub, 800 North Clybourn Avenue, Chicago, IL

We are supporting 826 Chicago. 826CHI is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.

Please bring $5 (or more!) to donate to the charity. You can make personal checks out to “826CHI” or bring cash! We have a private room (Siebel Hall) with our own cash bar and food can be ordered from the menu!

Also if you have emailed us about volunteering for a committee we will try to get the groups together at some point during the event. And as always, we will have some sort of raffle in exchange for your donations to 826 Chicago.

So come have fun, drink local beer and raise funds for a great local charity! We hope to see you there!

Attention Chicagoland Bibliophiles!

Hello fair readers!

This is an announcement to check out one of the very large projects that I have been working on with some really cool librarians…

Chicago Deskset

And most importantly our first event, a book drive for incarcerated teens at the Grafton Pub in Lincoln Square! This isn’t just for folks who work in libraries. Our mission reads as follows:

The Chicago Deskset is a group of bibliophiles, librarians, archivists, information professionals, friends of libraries and those just crazy enough to support us. Our goal is to create an environment in which collective intelligence can thrive through social events and give something back to our community, supporting charities near and dear to our hearts. We believe that our local focus will make our projects more effective and rewarding for everyone involved. In other words, it’s where social responsibility hits the streets of Chicago, librarian-style.

If that sounds like something you would be interested in then come check it out! You can RSVP to the event here:
