We’re excited to announce the upcoming Pop Up City sponsored event — The Dreamer’s Lounge. This one night only pop-up library will transform the currently vacant, yet architecturally stunning, Broadway Free Library with an evening of art, chess and, of course, reading. Please join us on MLK Jr. Day and help bring this library back to life!

We’re planning to fill the shelves with books to be donated to the Cleveland School District’s new Thomas Jefferson School for Newcomers. In addition to a friend or two, bring a new copy of:

From the Mixed‐Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg
The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
The Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer
Ramona Series by Beverly Cleary
The Giving Tree, Where the Sidewalk Ends, and The Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor
Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls

The event is organized by HandsOn Northeast Ohio, with additional support from Target, Medical Mutual of Ohio and the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. Click here to download the event flyer pdf.
