Additional LGBTQ+ Group Meetings

We are happy to announce that we are increasing the amount of our LGBTQ+ meetings! We’ll now have biweekly meetings for each group. The goal of these meetings is for folks to be able to discuss LGBTQ+ issues and topics in a safe, welcoming environment.

The groups are run by a volunteer: Pepperell resident J.D. Melendez who has been working with LGBTQ+ folks for over 20 years, with a focus on the Transgender and LGBTQ+ Youth communities. Library staff member Amy Lordan, who is a trained ally, co-facilitates.

Also of note: On August 1 at the youth group meeting, we’ll be showing a recently released movie that stars Nick Robinson and Katherine Langford! We’ll have pizza and popcorn!

Here are details on the new schedules:
