Library Display Celebrates LGBT Pride Month 2009


Image found via Creative Commons

June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transexual (LGBT) Pride Month, and the Robert R. Muntz Library is recognizing this observance with a book display. President Obama issued a proclamation for the month, which you can find here. Secretary of State Clinton also made a statement from the State Department for the observance as well. You can find it here. Both documents are part of the library display we are featuring in the library's third floor. Pride Month honors the achievements, struggles, and triumphs of the LGBT community. Our display is an opportunity for our community to learn more as well as check out some of our holdings on the topic. The display will be available through the month of June. These are some of the books featured in the display case. All books are available for checkout. If you wish to check out a book currently in the display case, feel free to stop by the circulation or reference desks, and we will be happy to open the display case for you.

Is there anything on Harvey Milk on display?

As of this moment, we do not have a specific book or item about Harvey Milk. Some of the historical works listed do cover his life in small chapters. It is an oversight we are working to fix. As always, if you do have a particular book or resource you would like to suggest, we take suggestions as well. And as soon as we add something, we'll post about it. Thanks for stopping by.
