Drag Queen Story Fills Public Libraries – Wholesome Children’s Book Story Hour At Public Libraries – No Way!! Are You Crazy

Drag Queen Story Fills Public Libraries – Wholesome Children’s Book Story Hour At Public Libraries – No Way!! Are You Crazy By  for American Greatness

Over 50 public libraries have reportedly denied or ignored actor and author Kirk Cameron’s requests for a story-hour slot to read his new children’s book. According to Cameron’s publisher, however, every library it contacted hosts “drag queen” story hours or other “queer friendly” programs for kids.

Public libraries typically allow authors of new books to read their stories to parents and their children as part of their story hour program.

Cameron’s wholesome book, “As You Grow,” celebrates family, faith and biblical wisdom, which many public libraries said they found inappropriate for their facilities. The Evangelical Christian has not been able to secure a single story hour booking at a public library in the United States to read his new children’s book, his publisher Brave Books told Fox News Digital.

“We have not been approved for a single book reading of ‘As You Grow’ from any library yet,” the publisher said.

The book is “part of a whole universe of books, with a whole series of characters,” Cameron, the father of six children, told Fox in a recent interview. “It teaches biblical wisdom and the value of producing the fruit of the spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, self-control.”

Brave Books shared with Fox its interactions with a number of libraries that have rejected Cameron’s story-hour requests.

“No, we will pass on having you run a program in our space,” The Rochambeau Public Library in Providence, Rhode Island, for instance, reportedly told Cameron’s book publisher by phone. “We are a very queer-friendly library. Our messaging does not align,” the library worker also said, according to Fox.

When asked about filling out a form to apply for a story-hour slot, the library official replied, “You can fill out the form to reserve space, to run the program in our space — but we won’t run your program.”

The Rochambeau Public Library does, however, host a weekly event for young people called “Queer Umbrella.”

It is a “club and safe space where teens can learn, discuss and connect over queer history, art, community resources, and more,” the library says on its website. It’s “open to all members of the LGBTQ+ community who are 12+,” the library also notes.
