Alameda County Library is committed to serving every community and making the library a welcoming space that is open to all. This month, we are joining the American Library Association and hundreds of libraries nationwide in the celebration of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (GLBT) Book Month. GLBT Book Month celebrates authors, books, and writings that reflect the lives and experiences of the GLBT community.
