Story Time with Que(e)ry Librarians

 

Join the Que(e)ry Librarians for Story Time at the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division! Friday, March 1, at 7:00pm, 27 Orchard St.

Gather around and hear queer literature for children and young adults, read by librarians and authors (to be announced), enjoy some kool-aid and animal crackers beer and wine, and browse the bookstore!


Que(e)ry’s goals are:

to provide a safe and fun social space and to encourage community among queer information professionals and their friends and allies;
to raise financial support and awareness for queer libraries, archives and museums;
to celebrate and encourage diverse representations and contributions of queer people in the cultural record and in the information professions;
to demystify and challenge stereotypes about libraries and librarians;
to demonstrate the relevance and accessibility of library collections and services to queer communities;
to highlight information philosophy and policy issues affecting queer communities and collections, such as censorship, bias, terminology, equal access, freedom of expression, obscenity, and privacy.
