Last Saturday, hundreds of libraries across the country hosted actor Kirk Cameron’s “See You at the Library” (SYAL) events, where parents could bring their children for a wholesome and faith-based story hour.
Our team brought a camera (with permission from the organizers) down to the SYAL event in Hastings, Minnesota. Both myself and our studio producer, Dawson, were pleasantly surprised by how smoothly the event went.
There were roughly 40 people in attendance, which included about 20-25 kids. The books read came from Kirk Cameron’s publisher, BRAVE Books, and included Little Lives Matter and Elephants are Not Birds.
There were no sexualized drag queens reading, nor were any dollar bills tucked away in inappropriate places. Just good children’s books and friendly faces.
Event organizers told the crowd as they departed that they would possibly host more of these events, whether they be annual or even monthly. To keep pace with the increasing frequency of “drag queen story hours,” we recommended the events be hosted as often as possible!
