Oh, yes…..it is a mad, mad world that is quickly coming off the rails …..Newark, Ohio is 33 miles east of Columbus. It seems our public libraries are being used for drag queen events. However, regardless of how we feel about a given activity, our federal and state constitution gives everyone the right to peacefully assemble. The question is whether our property taxes can be used to support such events. It will be interesting to see what happens when these events show up in Lake County.
We received a message today from our friends at Ohio Value Voters that Licking County Library has a drag queen event scheduled.
Please call the phone numbers below to let them know your view about libraries hosting drag queen events. It is easy and quick to make the calls.

Contact the Licking County Library and tell them to cancel this LGBTQIA Event. Tax-payer funded libraries should not be hosting this program with sexual content for minors.

Thank you very much for your time to make these quick calls.
Fyi, yesterday we sent you a message that Delaware County Library CANCELLED their drag queen event. That happened as a result of all the phone calls and contacts they received from Ohioans like you.
