Public libraries can be a great resource to find LGBT books.

And there are lots of great ways to help support public library LGBT collections.

1- If there's a book that you want, but they don't have it, putting a patron book request for it.

2- If they have LGBT books, borrowing them. (That shows the library that there is community demand, and that encourages them to buy more.)

This thread can be used however you wish to share info about LGBT books at public libraries in Washington State. :)

Things they had before this summer includes some books by Josh Lanyon, J.L. Langley, Ginn Hale and the collection Irregulars.

Seattle Public Library also has some LGBT heading that can be used to help find books (although not all LGBT fiction are tagged with them. It can still take hunting.)

Lesbian Fiction

Gay Fiction

There are more ways to explore, and often I've found that books will have different headings (some may have "gay romance", some may just have "mystery")

It does take some searching some times.

Also, a good reminder that we can make requests. I requested Nicole Kimberling's Turnskin and it arrived to SPL this month. :)

Also for those around Seattle, the Gay City LGBT Library is a nice free community resource. They have about 6000+ books, all of which is LGBT-focused, including fiction, etc. https://www.gaycity.org/library/

(><) I hate to burst the bubble but the titles you added are actually books that are physically available through KCLS, not through their digital library... (eg: you can put a hold on a physical copy of those digitally but you cannot read them on your kindle) Maybe another list for physical copies would be a good one to start?

I'll bbe removing the books once.. i figure out how.. Sorry! :(

It's your listopia list, so it's up to you how you wish it to be. For the purpose of this thread though, it's good to share information about both physical books and ebooks that are available in the local WA libraries. (Since people still take out both.)

And part of our purpose is to point to titles so people know they exist and can take them out. Lack of borrowing of a physical book has the same negative impact as lack of borrowing of an ebook. (So, if no one takes out Tigers and Devils from KCLS, the librarians may be less likely to buy the sequel Tigerland, or any other book by Sean Kennedy.)

So you don't need to keep them on your personal listopia list, but I encourage people to share info on this thread about any finds or recommendations in the library, paperbsck or ebooks. Both formats are fine, and both are used to make library decisions.

Like for Seattle Public Library, there are quite a few that are in paperback only, like Irregulars, The Tin Star, and The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks.

sk B (dolceluna) | 10 comments *squeal* KCLS just added a digital copy of Change of Heart (Change of Heart, #1) by Mary Calmes after I put in a request! :) I'm already on the waiting list for the lend, with 6 people ahead of me!!

If there are any other users out there that have access to KCLS please keep on request digital (or not digital) copies of MM Romance books <3

Thanks!

sk B (dolceluna) | 10 comments Just a quick FYI the KCLS Digital Library (Overdrive) has added 4 more books (yay!)

Please keep requesting these types of books to help our local collection grow (^_^)b

I discovered these books had just been added by pure luck (it showed up as "new releases". Joy!

sk B (dolceluna) | 10 comments Another Quick Bump up:

KSLC has recently added a few more MM Romances (Mainly by Amy Lane & Andrew Grey) for those that are curious, I have updated the list :)
