Tuesday, June 28, 2016 @ 9:58 AM

Prince George, B.C. – LGBTQ teens will have a safe place to hang out this summer.

This as the Prince George Public Library has announced the Library Queer Straight Alliance (QSA) will continue its free drop in program over the summer.

The program is for teens in grades 8-12 and was one of the first Library QSA’s in Canada.

“The Library QSA is especially important at this time of year because it ensures that students who had access to QSA’s in their high schools over the school year still have a safe space to hang out during the summer,” said teen programmer, Michael Cruickshank.

Participants of the club initiate various activities including crafts and games.

The program runs every other Tuesday from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the Bob Harkins Branch. This summer the program will be offered at the same time on the following dates: June 28th, July 12th, July 26th August 9th and August 23rd.
