Welcome to Westlake Porter Public Library’s Summer of Pride! While the library will not be hosting in-person programs this summer, our staff members are committed to offering diverse and inclusive educational opportunities and fun activities for our community. Our Adult Services and Youth Services staff will be sharing awesome crafts, story times, book and film recommendations, as well as special events, that celebrate the voices and experiences of LGBTQ+ people of all ages, past and present.

To kick off our celebration, you can check out these staff picks of LGBTQ+ fiction titles for adults and teens, as well as Miss Natalie’s Pride Storytime for children and families. Ken Schneck will host Ohio is SO Gay! Trivia Night, a fun-filled LGBTQ+ Ohio history event, on Tuesday, June 23 at 7 pm; you can find further details and register here. Later this summer, the library will offer special programs on the history of gender identity and queer pop culture. (You can also check out Facebook and Instagram for additional content.)

Stay tuned for more exciting activities and events!
