Happy Juneteenth! We honor the historic and ongoing fight for Black Freedom.

Here are a few resources we'd like to highlight today:

We have added these resources to our own Black Lives Matter Library Resource List which we are continuously updating.


Happy Tenth Birthday, Que(e)ry!

June 18, 2020

Que(e)ry's first event took place 10 years ago today, on June 18, 2010, at Blackout Bar in Brooklyn. Sadly, the bar has since closed, but you can check out some pictures of the party on Flickr.

That party was a fundraiser for the Tom of Finland Foundation Archives, and the Lesbian Herstory Archives. Since then, we've raised over $20,000 for them and other queer libraries and archives!

While the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago was cancelled, we do look forward to celebrating with you in person whenever we can!
