Pajama Party to Celebrate Beachwood Couple's Dedication to Young Readers

Mort and Iris November's endowment ensures the future of a program that provides books to Cleveland children.

A Beachwood couple will be celebrated on Sunday after their endowment has ensured the future of a program that provides books to Cleveland children.

Mort and Iris November have donated to countless charitable causes in the Cleveland area, many inspired by Mort's late daughter Debra Ann.

"It's going to be a hoot," said Iris November. The PJ Library Pajama Party will take place at the Mandel Jewish Community Center Jan. 13 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and is open to the public. 

The PJ Library is a national organization that sends Jewish books and music to children monthly.

Kids in pajamas can play on inflatables, get their faces painted, craft, dance and listen to story time. The party is free but participants are asked to RSVP to Dana Scott by email dscott@jcfcleve.org or phone 216-593-2872.

"We feel that is love of books, love of reading, and [the kids] knowing that they're important enough to have their own books... it's just a way of growing up with literature," she added.
