LGBT+ collection

City Libraries' LGBT+ collection is a handpicked selection of new and recommended resources for our LGBTIQAP+ customers (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Intersex, Queer, Asexual, Pansexual and other identities), including:

  • adult fiction
  • young adult fiction
  • graphic novels
  • non-fiction, including biography, culture, history, travel, parenting and self-help
  • magazines
  • DVDs (movies and television series)
  • online reference resources.

The LGBT+ collection is part of a wider range of content available across our libraries of interest to our LGBTIQAP+ and other customers. We add new resources as they become available, and welcome your feedback and suggestions for new items.
