Pride Reading Guide

As part of Pride Month (and all year long), we want to celebrate 2SLGBTQIA+ creators and stories.

Looking for something great to read? We've got lots of ideas! Check out these suggested reading lists for all ages.

NLPL Librarians Recommend: 2SLGBTQIA+ Book Lists. For kids, teens, parents, & everyone!

Each page in this guide hosts lists for all audiences (kids, teens, adults, parents), with links to many different recommendations for print books in our main catalogue, as well as lists of eBooks and eAudiobooks in Overdrive/Libby. Each category showcases a select number of staff picks, but our collection usually has much more on each topic, and additional formats (eBooks, eAudiobooks, audiobooks on CD) are often available.

As of June 2023, this Pride Guide has been updated to connect more easily to the brand new NLPL Catalogue website. The lists themselves are now hosted directly in our catalogue to make browsing and borrowing even easier!

Check out all the different book lists in the guide, organized by audience, or view all of the NLPL Pride book lists on their new home page.
