Sunday Storytime…She’s Baaaack!

On SundayOctober 8th at 3:30 PM in the Auditorium, Miss Deja Brooks returns for an all-ages storytime with stories celebrating our local LGBTQIA+ community, families of all kinds, fun, and of course—RAINBOWS!

Over 200 people came out for Miss Deja’s premiere at the library in June 2017! Party pix are here!

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)
