Drag Queen Talon Marks reading a story

Meet Our Drag Queen Host, Talon Marks!

"Adventure and excitement; new places, people, and ideas. Books have it all! I hope you can join me at the library to share some of my favorite stories and songs with you. Bring a friend!" - Talon Marks

Talon Marks has completed storytime training with the Early Education unit. His teaching background made him a natural storyteller. Check-out his Wee Share Stories video done in one take!

Celebrate Pride with Us

What do Drag Queens and young children have in common? They both love to dress up in creative fashions and use their imaginations to fully explore their world and their identity. This summer, we’ll be celebrating Pride in our diverse and unique community by looking Over the Rainbow with Drag Queen storytimes at King Library, in partnership with Silicon Valley Pride.

Drag Queen storytime is a family-friendly way of recognizing the multiple layers that make us who we are.Our featured Drag Queen, Talon Marks, will kick-off our newest story hour program, dressed in full glamorous glory, possibly with glitter, to share age appropriate stories and songs with children and families of all ages. Stories will highlight inclusion, diversity and friendship. There will also be an opportunity for children to ask questions and learn more about Talon after the storytime.
