Books & Brew

It’s called Books & Brew Book Sorting, but it also could be called Doing Good While Drinking. This event, happening Tuesday evening and on four other dates through Dec. 11, offers a fun way to help a good cause.

BYOB and help sort and pack books at and for Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank, 3635 Perkins Ave., Suite 1E, in the city’s Midtown neighborhood. Light snacks will be provided.

Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank provides free books for Cleveland children in need. Since starting in March 2016, the organization has distributed more than 2 million high-quality children’s books to more than 100,000 children and families in need in Greater Cleveland annually, according to its website.

Tuesday’s free event goes from 6 to 8 p.m., as do subsequent events on Oct. 2 and 24, Nov. 12 and Dec. 11. Note: Not all of these dates fall on the same day of the week.

The Facebook event page invites “Young Professionals” to bring a buddy, although it doesn’t specify a maximum age. I doubt organizers would reject any willing volunteers for being “too old.” However, you do need to be 21 or over to participate. 

Register here for one or more of the dates. Each date has 30 slots for volunteers, but some are already taken. At this writing, Tuesday’s event was filling up the fastest, with 14 of 30 slots filled. If you’re interested, you’d be wise to sign up ASAP.
