Party with librarians and raise money for literacy outreach at Biblioball 2012, taking place at The Bell House at 149 Seventh St. in Gowanus on Saturday night, Dec. 8, 2012.

The event includes live music from Los Encantados, DJ sets by Duane Harriott, Brian Blackout, John XI, Marty McSorley and Mikey Post, portrait shots, an interactive postcard writing installation, and a "Fancy Pants Raffle."

"For the full Biblioball experience, you don't have to be a librarian, you just have to dance with one," the Bell House website proclaims.

Tickets cost $23 in advance, $30 at the door and $10 after midnight. Proceeds benefit Literacy for Incarcerated Teens. Half of the money funds raised by the raffle will go toward a Hurricane Sandy children's book relief fund set-up by Urban Librarians Unite.
