You Belong at Your Library  

Libraries are for everyone. At SPL, we are dedicated to being a safe, welcoming, and respectful space for all. Public libraries are crucial for finding information and support, hearing and telling stories, and discovering community. With a wide range of 2SLGBTQIA+ books and materials, we help you explore your identity and gain a better understanding of the world. Here, you can learn about 2SLGBTQIA+ history, see yourself reflected in stories, and access healthcare and social services information. 

Explore resources and reading lists that celebrate the voices of our diverse communities, supporting you and your family throughout the year—not just in June. 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. Together, we create a community where everyone belongs.
