Celebrate Pride Month with Free Library!

By Julie B. RSS Tue, May 30, 2017

We're free, we're proud, and we're fabulous here at the the Free Library! We're proud to celebrate Pride Month throughout June with a series of programming throughout our neighborhood libraries including health seminars, film screenings, LGBTQIA+/gender-diverse “rainbow” storytimes, and more in celebration and support of the LGBTQIA+ community.

The Free Library is dedicated to inclusivity and diversity, with neighborhood libraries serving as welcoming and safe spaces for all Philadelphians. We offer information on bullying, safety, and coming out; books and resources for parents and siblings; biographies of important LGBTQIA+ figures in the community; and award-winning LGBTQIA+ fiction. In addition, the Independence Library’s Barbara Gittings Gay & Lesbian Collection is the largest dedicated LGBTQ public library collection east of the San Francisco Public Library. 

Check out our online calendar or download a pdf of the complete list of more than 50 Pride events happening at neighborhood libraries across the city. For more information, including online resources and LGBTQ booklists, visit freelibrary.org/pride.
