Ketchikan Public Library's Story Time

By Kathy Flora


June 21, 2022

I’ve been a tax paying resident of the Ketchikan for 50 years, with the help of the Ketchikan Public Library I’ve raised 3 beautiful children. We went to a wide variety of guest readers at Story Time.

Long ago when some parents took exception to a clown reading (a man in clown makeup ), they didn’t go.

I’m appalled at the lies, discrimination,  and character assassination by Mayor Dial for the sole purpose of inciting mob hysteria in our community.  

If you don’t want to go to The Drag Queen story time you have the Freedom of choosing not to go.

No one has the right to ban my freedom to attend.

Last time I checked this is America,
