On Saturday, June 15, PCL had a booth at the Rhode Island PrideFest for the first time! With themed book raffles, crafts, and fun activities, library staff interacted with well over 200 attendees and spread the message that the library is a welcoming and safe space for the LGBTQ+ community.
Special thanks go to Rochambeau staff member Kelly Parlin for proposing that PCL should have a presence at PrideFest and also the several other staff that volunteered to support the day-long event. Thanks also to the Friends of Rochambeau for providing sponsorship. As you can see, it was a great day!
