Support young readers with ‘Books and Beer’
- Published: October 5, 2015
The Greene County Public Library Foundation will host “Books and Beer,” a fundraiser event, at Yellow Springs Brewery tomorrow night, Oct. 6, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The event is open to anyone over 21 years old. Funds raised will support the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program, a literacy effort that puts books directly into the hands of children up to age 5. Any Greene County child under the age of 5 can register for free. The Greene County Dolly Partion Imagination Library program currently has 3,600 children enrolled, and over 70,000 books have been delivered to Greene County children via the program.
Tickets are $25 — the amount of money it takes to fund a child enrolled in the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program for one year. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online (http://www.greenelibraryfoundation.org/booksandbeer). Yellow Springs Brewery will supply the drinks, while local nonprofit One Bistro will provide the food. Baskets donated by a variety of local businesses, chambers of commerce and community groups will be up for silent auction. All proceeds go directly to Greene County’s Dolly Parton Imagination Library program.
