Virtual Pride Month Storytime

June is National Pride Month! Celebrate and join us for this special read aloud as we celebrate all types of love and all kinds of families. We will be reading Mighty May Won’t Cry Today, a story about May, an imaginative and determined girl who tries not to shed a tear on her first day of school but with the help of her two moms, learns why it’s okay to cry.

Storytime will include:

  • Q&A with the authors and illustrator
  • A live drawing by the illustrator
  • A raffle to win a signed book, the live doodle, and a denim bag!

All attendees will receive a free e-book and free digital coloring pages.
