LIBRARY CANCELS DRAG 101 DUE TO SAFETY CONCERNS
Delaware, OH: -- The following statement was given this morning at a press conference by Delaware County District Library Director George Needham:
The Delaware County District Library planned a program for teens titled “Drag 101.” The program has been canceled. The program had been scheduled for June 5th at 2:00 pm here at the Orange Branch Library. This program featured local drag performer Selena T.

Thank you to everyone who has stated their opinion regarding our Drag 101 program. Our staff have listened to every concern and we have several answers to the common questions that have arisen.

Summer is by far the busiest time of year at the Delaware County District Library. Why? Because from May 31 through July 28 we host our annual Summer Reading Club! This year's theme is "A Universe of Stories." We will blast off into space and explore the science of our solar system, while we also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing!
You do not have to look far to see traces of the past in Delaware County. Local artist Linda Wesner continues her search for landscapes threatened by new development.
“Since I moved here in 2003,” she says, “so many farms and fields have disappeared. I never leave home without my camera so I can take reference photos for future artwork.”
