Lafayette, La - The Lafayette Public Library's program entitled "Drag Queen Story Time" scheduled for Saturday, October 6th is being moved from the Main Library on Congress Street to the South Louisiana Community College ("SLCC"). 

The event will be held from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Health and Sciences Auditorium on the SLCC campus at 1101 Bertrand Drive. The event is being hosted by SLCC's Umbrella Club and the Lafayette Public Library.

According to LPL Director Teresa Elberson, the move addresses the need for a larger venue due to an anticipated-overflow crowd and resulting safety concerns. In addition, the expected disruption to regular Saturday activities at the Main Library makes moving the program to another venue practical.

Delta Lambda Phi, the sponsoring fraternity for Drag Queen Story Time has selected the following three titles to read at the event.
