Every June, LGBTQ+ Pride Month honors the 1969 Stonewall Riots in Manhattan and celebrates the impact that the LGBTQ+ community has had on local, national, and international history. This year's celebration is especially momentous because it marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. This month (and all year), use your library to not only learn more about Pride Month and its history but also to participate in activities and educational programs in your community!
