You Belong at Your Library  

Happy Pride! We are reaffirming our commitment to providing a safe space and equitable service, so we can inspire within you the undeniable sense that you belong at your library. We strive to support you, your family, and your chosen family in every stage of your journey, all year round – not just in June. 

To be a voice in the community advocating for equality, we need to lead by example. The many ways we interact with our community provide us with opportunities to listen and learn, and be role models for others. We are proud to do our part to support the future of 2SLGBTQIA+ youth, to make sure they have role models and can grow up to be role models.  

Public libraries are an important place to find information and support, to hear and tell stories, and to discover community. With a wide range of 2SLGBTQIA+ books and other materials, libraries can help you explore your identity and gain a better understanding of the world around you. Here, you can learn more about 2SLGBTQIA+ history, find yourself reflected in stories, and access information about healthcare and other social services. 

By coming together in support of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, we show that the values of inclusiveness and acceptance are much more powerful than hate and intolerance.
