As part of LGBT History month we will be launching our LGBT+ Under Fives book list in partnership with Islington’s Pride and Gays the Word bookshop.

 LGBT+ Under Fives book list
 
The launch will be on Tuesday 5 February at 11am in the Islington Museum at a special Drag Queen story time session with Cookie MonStar and there’s no better time to be launching this book list given the continued attempts from around the world to ban LGBT+ books (see article below).

The Deputy Mayor will be in attendance as will Gays the Word and the Reading Agency.
 
Each library will have a set of books to go with the book list and these will be promoted throughout the month with book displays and also at their Under Fives sessions.
 
Bright Start are looking at producing Home Learning packs featuring the book list which will provide further support.
 
Thanks to Geoff (Libraries) and Jim (Gays the Word) for selecting the 30 titles.
