CCLD holds second drag queen story time
Elmira, NY (WENY) -- Dozens of children packed the Steele Memorial library for “Frozen Drag Queen” story time.
Drag story time featured face painting, crafts and of course a book reading. Thursday was the second time, the library had held a drag queen story hour. CCLD's director said over 100 people showed up to the first story time.
This all followed a Chemung County budget committee meeting in which legislator Joe Brennan voiced strong concerns surrounding the programming choice. Brennan went to social media to urge Chemung County voters to vote "no" on the funding item for the library district.
The funding did get approved by voters by more than 70%, which goes towards funding all of the library's operations.
