Que(e)ry began in June 2010 as a subgroup of The Desk Set (http://thedeskset.org/), an informal group of librarians, archivists, library science students and other individuals who love books and occasionally throw fund-raising parties for libraries and non-profit organizations whose missions support literacy and culture. Que(e)ry aims to promote awareness for non-profit libraries and archives with collections and services related to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and two spirit rights, heritage, and literature. Que(e)ry has held nine successful parties to benefit such organizations across the country, including the Lesbian Herstory Archives, the Tom of Finland Foundation, the LGBT Community Center Library in NYC, the Queer Zine Archive Project, the Gerber/Hart Library and Archives, and the Transgender Foundation of America Archives.

Anyone going to Queery want to meet up for a vegan friendly dinner in that area beforehand?

Great idea! Que(e)ry can spread the word on our other social media, if you like!

Is this venue anywhere close to the Chicago Diner? I would love to try that place.

Location looks like it's a few stops away. Subterranean is 2011 W north Ave, at N Milwaukee Ave.

Looks like Chicago Diner is a good pick - meet up at 7?

Battledecks ends at 6:30 so I should be able to make it

the "and those that love them" do they need to be registered at ALA to attend?

The event is open to the public with no need for Conference registration. It is a benefit event with a suggested donation solicited at the door, but all are welcome. The venue is 21+ and we expect ID will be required for entry. The venue website says it is wheelchair accessible but the restrooms are not fully ADA accessible, though they are gender-neutral.

Awesome! thank you so much! Can't wait!

Attention: new venue: Continental lounge, 2801 w Chicago ave. sorry for the inconvenience!
