June is Pride!

Join us for a series of events for all ages that celebrate inclusion and diversity in our community. 

Queer History Chat

A positive space for LGBQT2S+ teens and their allies to discuss the history of LGBQT2S+ rights. The library will have books on the subject displayed for you to explore. If there's a historic time or person you are passionate about you can share that information with the group. This is not a formal presentation, just an opportunity to share the learning experience. 

Thursday June 23rd at 6 pm
