LGBT Pride Month has been nationally recognized in June for almost two decades, taking a positive stance against discrimination toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people to promote equal rights, increase visibility, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance (Wikipedia).
At the library, we develop our collection and services to meet the needs of every member of our diverse community. The Children’s Area has programs for children of all ages, and books featuring characters with all types of families, abilities, and interests. These LGBT-positive picture books are appropriate for young children, but their message of being true to oneself is meaningful for readers of all ages!
This Sunday, seniors and children again team up to create the beautiful garden that grows each spring and summer in the Children's Courtyard on the Grant Street side of the Main Library. Come by with the kids at 3 p.m. Sunday to join in the fun, learn from seasoned gardeners, and get messy! Read more about How Does Your Garden Grow?: Gardening with Kids
