Community Forum: Give Us Feedback!

flyer for event

 

YOU’RE INVITED! To a community forum to give us feedback. This forum is part of our strategic planning process, which began in August of this year. Through this process we hope to think critically about where we are, where we want to be, and how to get there. So far we have learned from community, via a survey, that folks would like us to be open more hours, have more diverse programming and events, and improve our outreach so that we have a larger presence in the community. At this community forum we’ll have questions about those topics and more.

This is a “drop-in” style event, so you can come at any point from 4:30-8PM to give feedback. There will be snacks and refreshments, along with a drawing for door prizes at the end! Prizes include a movie, free memberships, gift cards, and more!

Metered street parking is available, along with a limited number of free spots in the building’s small lot.

Event Information:
Friday October 20, 4:30-8PM, at the Lavender Library on 1414 21st Street

For more information or accommodations, please contact info@lavenderlibrary.com 

Upcoming Event: “LLACE After Dark–Skin Mags”

flyer for event

We’re very excited to announce a new series making use of materials in our library that many probably don’t even know we have! This new event series is devoted to the appreciation of LGBTQ erotica and sexuality. We approach each topic with theoretical lenses that are critical, queer, and campy. These events are strictly 18+

This installation (the inaugural one) is a discussion of gay erotic magazines from the 1960s to the 1990s. We’ll discuss their cultural importance and meaning. Dr. Tristan Josephson, Women’s Studies professor at Sacramento State, will be present to give scholarly analysis.

Street/metered parking is available, along with a few parking spots in our small parking lot in the alley. For updated information, please check out the Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/340171726418877
