Story hour just got a lot more glamorous. As part of our celebration of Kinky Boots, we’re sponsoring a morning of songs and stories at the Olney Public Library hosted by the incomparable drag queen D’manda Martini. Participants will be welcomed by Parasol Patrol DMV who create a rainbow walkway to the library entrance, ensuring everyone attending can enter the venue safely and joyfully. This is a free family event, appropriate for all ages, especially toddlers, preschoolers, and young children.
