June is 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. It was originally established in the 1990's as National Lesbian and Gay Book Month.
Celebrate with us by perusing the American Library Association's:
- Stonewall Book Awards
- Rainbow Roundtable's Rainbow Book List for kids and teens
- Over the Rainbow Book List
The American Library Association reminds us that libraries can serve lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LBGTQ) people by ensuring that this population is reflected in library collections and provided with services at the library. With an NMU login, you are welcome to suggest a purchase for the Olson Library collection.
