Does your library serve lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) families? Do you know how to design displays, programs, services, and collections inclusive of these Rainbow Families? How do you select high-quality children’s materials representing Rainbow Families? Where can you find information about successful children’s library programs that welcome Rainbow Families?
