The American Library Association is celebrating Pride Month with “Rainbow Book Month,” a nationwide “celebration of the authors and writings that reflect the lives and experiences of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, pansexual, genderqueer, queer, intersex, agender and asexual community.”

The ALA has a template for a letter to the editor of local papers to promote the local library as “no longer just a place for books,” but a “trusted resources that transforms lives through fostering community, understanding and access to the very best in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, pansexual, genderqueer, queer, intersex, agender and asexual literature.”

There’s also a document helping libraries respond to Drag Queen Story Hour events.

“Drag Queen Story Hour is a program or event featuring drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools or bookstores. It was created by Michelle Tea and RADA Productions in San Francisco. The official Drag Queen Story Hour website is www.dragqueenstoryhour.org.”
