Show Your Pride with HHPL

Posted On Tuesday June 07, 2022

June celebrates our 2SLGBTQ+ community and allies. During Pride month, we commemorate the historic and current impact that two-spirited, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and a diverse array of other people have had locally, nationally, and internationally. It’s a great time to recognize the contributions of our 2SLGBTQ+ peers, learn a little bit more about 2SLGBTQ+ history, celebrate diversity, and consider the ways that we can all contribute to creating a more inclusive Halton Hills. 

Halton Hills Public Library invites the community to celebrate in fabulous style with programs, collections, resources, and pride!

Positive Space Network (PSN)
PSN, in partnership with HHPL, is offering drop-ins. This program provides a safe space for 2SLGBTQ+ youth aged 12-24 to engage, connect and have fun with one another! PSN hosts workshops, guest speakers, and provides games and food. Join us on Tuesday, June 21 from 3:30 – 6 p.m. at the Acton Branch for an enjoyable and social time. PSN also offers gender-affirming gear to trans and non-binary youth. For more information, please contact the Positive Space Network.

Collections
Visit the Library and discover all that we have to offer our 2SLGBTQ+ community members and allies. Borrow poetry, books, movies, eBooks, and audiobooks, written by 2SLGBTQ+ authors and creators. Reserve online and pick them up in branch or stop by your favourite library branch to browse and explore our shelves. We have something for everyone. Visit HHPL’s online catalogue to view our collection. Happy Pride!

Drag Queen Storytime – SAVE THE DATE!
Your Library is once again proud to offer our popular Drag Queen Storytime, hosted by Fay and Fluffy! Drag Queen Storytime takes traditional elements of a professional performance for children and adds an opportunity to promote inclusion and diversity. It is a chance to offer 2SLGBTQ+ positive family programming that helps to create understanding and appreciation of gender roles and diversity. As our most popular program of all time, we are happy to have everyone join us Saturday, July 9 at 10 a.m. As Fay and Fluffy say, “Reading is fun-damental!”

In Branch Displays
Visit the Acton or Georgetown Branches of HHPL to view our Pride displays. Our displays feature information, books, and resources for 2SLGBTQ+ individuals, friends, family members and allies.
