Join the Que(e)ry Librarians for Story Time at the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division

Gather around and hear queer literature for children and young adults, read by librarians and authors (to be announced), enjoy some kool-aid and animal crackers beer and wine, and browse the bookstore! RSVP on Facebook

Que(e)ry’s goals are:

  • to provide a safe and fun social space and to encourage community among queer information professionals and their friends and allies;
  • to raise financial support and awareness for queer libraries, archives and museums;
  • to celebrate and encourage diverse representations and contributions of queer people in the cultural record and in the information professions;
  • to demystify and challenge stereotypes about libraries and librarians;
  • to demonstrate the relevance and accessibility of library collections and services to queer communities;
  • to highlight information philosophy and policy issues affecting queer communities and collections, such as censorship, bias, terminology, equal access, freedom of expression, obscenity, and privacy.
