Library

Craig Gibb Programs Library

Rainbow Resource Centre (RRC) Library is an affirming safer space in which diverse sexual and gender identities, orientations, and expressions are represented in a collection of materials that promotes awareness and education about our community’s experiences. Our content is non-archival material written by LGBT2SQ+ authors and/or contains LGBT2SQ+ subject matter.

The purpose of the Library is to provide a safer, welcoming environment that is user-friendly and functions as a place to learn, socialize, and network. We aim to provide access to knowledge which may allow folks to learn, unlearn, relearn, discover, reflect, and grow. One of our goals is to help provide readers with insight through access to non-fiction or an escape from daily life through fiction.
