Welcome!

The San José Public Library is committed to creating affirming and welcoming spaces for all members of our community. Through our programs and collections we celebrate LGBTQ+ voices and members in our community. As information providers, we are poised to provide access to community organizations and resources for those in need, especially for our youth in need of help.
