Bring your umbrellas and meet at the Library at 3:30 p.m. for a brief overview before kids begin to arrive. Be prepared to be live streamed and recorded by protesters. There will be NO SPEAKING or COUNTER ARGUMENTS with people from hate groups no matter what they may say to provoke children or ourselves.
