This past weekend, Gwinnett County Public Library participated in the Atlanta Pride Festival. We set up a booth in the heart of Piedmont Park and brought a button maker, crafts, and lots of enthusiasm. Our amazing children’s librarians offered storytimes throughout the weekend and joyfully shared their love of the library, along with the entire community that we serve. We try to ensure that our resources, programs, and collection reflect the diversity that we see all around us and, to that end, we came up with a short list of LGBTQ+ titles in honor of Pride Week. No matter who you are, there’s something in the library for you. Check out one of these amazing titles today!
