We've got Pride at the Library!

Brooklyn Public Library is celebrating Pride 2022 with expanded access to queer books, brand new booklists, and some great events. 

This year's BPL pride theme is inspired by Valentino Vecchietti's Intersex-Inclusive Progress Pride flag of 2021, which will fly all of June at Central Library. Visit Consortium for more information and to download the flag files.
