Recommendations from CU Pride Fest!


Last Saturday I had the opportunity to represent The Urbana Free Library at the 5th Annual CU Pride Festival, sponsored by the Up Center of Champaign County. The event was held this year in downtown Champaign, and the weather cooperated beautifully. As part of my display for the library, I asked festival attendees to write down their favorite LBGTQA movies and books and pin them to our board, and we got a great response. I had so much fun talking to people about books and movies, most of which I was happy to say we had in our collection here at the library. We promised those that contributed that we would make the lists available to the public, so here are your recommendations from CU Pride Fest! Thanks to everyone who came by the booth and had so many great suggestions.

If you have suggestions that aren’t on our list, or items you think the library should own, feel free to post in the comments, suggest a purchase, or email me at
