Learn how to be an effective ally to the LGBTQ+ people in your life! On Wednesday, September 12, the Lawrence Library will be hosting an LGBTQ+ 101 training. This program will serve as a basic introduction to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer+ (LGBTQ+) community. It will also cover terminology, statistics, and some of the issues that LGBTQ+ people face.
J.D. also facilitates our two LGBTQ+ groups. Our youth group meets on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. The adult group meets on the second and third Wednesday of each month. The start time for the meetings is 6:30 PM. Please note that allies are welcome to attend the adult LGBTQ+ group!
The LGBTQ+ 101 training will start at 6:30 PM and will be held in the Library’s meeting room on the lower level. Please register online. We hope to see you there!

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!
This summer, you can travel around the world without your passport, by diving into a good book! Families with school-aged children are welcome to join us on an adventure through the Amazon Rain Forest on Wednesday, July 11 at 6 PM for our Family Book Club.
