Celebrate Pride Month

June is LGBTQ Pride Month. This month is celebrated in honor of the 1969 Stonewall riots and works to achieve equal justice and opportunity for LGBTQ Americans. It is also a time when LGBTQ individuals in our community and all over the country celebrate the freedom to be themselves. If you plan on celebrating this month yourself, here are some ways you can do so with the library. Keep scrolling for a craft and some book recommendations. This month we will also be giving out pride ribbon pins at the library!

In case you didn’t get to pick up a kit from the library, below are the instructions for the Take & Make Pride Bracelets. Feel free to switch out the colors for a more specific pride flag color palette.

And of course, find something good to read! Here are some books that are in our collection that have LGBTQ representation.

Looking for more title recommendations? Stop by the Reader’s Advisory desk at the library and a Youth Services librarian will help you!
