Reservations are being taken for the "Ladies in Little Black Dresses for Literacy" fundraising event being held by the Literary Society of the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County (PLYMC). The event begins at 6 p.m., Thurs., June 7, at the Lake Club, 1140 Paulin Rd.

Tickets are still available for the event at $40 each, which includes heavy appetizers and one glass of wine. There will be a cash bar. Attendees are asked to wear their favorite little black dress or suit and bring a copy of a book by their favorite author to swap with others at the event. Guests can also donate once-read and brand new children's books.

This event benefits two Library Foundation funds: the Carol A. Bacon Literary Society Fund and the Martha Muransky Children's Literacy Fund. These boutiques will sell accessories and a portion of the proceeds from participating boutiques will benefit these funds: Suzanne's, ivory & birch, and Matilda Jane Clothing. Along with the Library Foundation, sponsors of the event are The Muransky Companies, in memory of Martha Muransky, and Home Savings.
