Orlando Public Library's "Booktoberfest" has been rescheduled for Friday, Oct. 21, after being postponed due to Hurricane Matthew.

Libraries are fun enough (for some of us), but something about the soberly quiet academic atmosphere makes it the subject of a number of fantasies... like getting buzzed after-hours in an otherwise strict environment.

The Friends of the Orange County Library System, who work with the library to increase public awareness of its services, are helping that specific fantasy come true. 

Booktoberfest is a 21-plus fundraiser featuring beer trivia, a silent auction with prizes, and food from Rogue Pub. If anything, it's a unique way to go out for drinks on a Friday.

6:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21 | Orlando Public Library, 101 E. Central Blvd. | 407-835-7323 | | $15-$20 (in advance), $20-$25 (at the door)
