Abstract

Access to a World of Rainbow Family Children’s Books via Partnerships and Programs: Suggestions for Library Outreach to LGBT Family Associations

This paper explores the theme of Rainbow Families’ access to information and library collections throughout the world. Specifically, it describes the role of LGBTQ children’s literature in the lives of Rainbow Families, provides a brief overview of international LGBTQ children’s books publishing, suggests library collaborations with Rainbow Family or LGBT Family associations, and profiles a selection of literacy or educational programs designed for children in Rainbow Families. The intent is to call attention to resources available for Rainbow Families around the globe and highlight the need for collaboration and library outreach in these countries to enhance access to these rich materials.
