Well, it was the cat lady librarians that green lit this shit to signal their virtue, so, take it out of the library budget, oops, no more money, sorry bitches you’re let go. Let them organize their drag queen story time in homeless encampments.
Or turn it into boxed wine netflix storytime in their cat infested living rooms
42K for one drag queen? This alone should make tax payers demand they shut the whole shitshow down.
It is a PUBLIC library.
If drag queens want to have story hour they can hold their events in privately owned bookstores much like book signing events.
