LGBTQ Library


As a result of the generous donations of thousands of books by our community, The Center holds a diverse collection of LGBTQ literature available for check out by community members free of charge. The Center’s LGBTQ lending library contains a variety of fiction and non-fiction literature spanning decades. For more information on checking out books, please call or visit The Center’s front desk.
