As a result of the generous donations of thousands of books by our community, The Center holds a diverse collection of LGBTQ literature available for check out by community members free of charge. The Center’s LGBTQ lending library contains a variety of fiction and non-fiction literature spanning decades. For more information on checking out books, please call or visit The Center’s front desk.
The Center is a distribution site for a number of free magazines and publications of relevance to the LGBTQ and Long Beach community. From LGBT staples like GED, Frontiers, and Rage to the Gay and Lesbian Yellow Pages and Long Beach Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Directory, to the Grunion Gazette, and Random Length News, The Center is your one stop shop for periodicals. The magazine rack is located in the rear of The Center on the first floor next to the community bulletin boards.
