Member Library

Our PFLAG chapter has the following books and DVDs available for check-out. Our librarian brings a select number of books to each meeting for display at a table near the front of the room and handles all other library requests.

  • If you attend a meeting and see any items you like on the table, he/she can help you check it out.
  • If you see any library items on the following list, contact us so that we bring them to the next meeting.
  • If you are interested in a book that we do not carry, you can check the King County Library to see if they carry it or talk to librarian about how to procure it.
