Deja’s Reading Rainbow

We’ve got a superstar guest joining us for an all-ages storytime this month! Miss Deja Brooks will be here Sunday, December 10th at 3:30 PM in the Auditorium with stories celebrating our local LGBTQIA+ community, families of all kinds, fun, and of course—RAINBOWS!

Following the lead of Harvey Milk Memorial Library and Brooklyn Public Library, we’re hoping our own version of drag queen storytime is as sparkly and glamorous as it is a safe space for, “positive, and unabashedly queer role models…where kids can imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.” (SOURCE: Drag Queen Story Hour)
