Through the performance art of Drag, the Rainbow Optimist Club has produced our Drag Storytimes. The Drag Storytimes are a unique way to engage children in learning about inclusion and diversity through reading a selection of carefully curated books by our 6 Library partners: Elgin County Library, London Public Library,  Middlesex County Library, Oxford County Library, St. Thomas Public Library and Woodstock Public Library.

 

All the Drag Storytellers goes through a 2 step vetting process.  First they are asked to fill out the volunteer registration form which was created with the assistance of a former corrections officer. Once the application is accepted, they are then asked to get a Police Vulnerable Sector Check.  All are current Drag Storytellers have been through this two step vetting process.

Drag Storytime has been an evolution from in-person storytimes at rural libraries,

to a virtual Drag Storytime format, now a highbred of in-person and virtual.  Read more about the history of Drag Storytime here
