First Monday: Community building–group activities including LGBTQIA picture book storytime, guest LGBTQIA authors, discussing LGBTQIA artists, media, and issues, and recommending LGBTQIA works

Third Monday: Book club–in which we dive into the book of the month


To foster an inclusive space, a brief safe space policy will be read at the start of each meaning, and participants will be encouraged to share their preferred name and pronouns. Discussions will be kept to age-appropriate topics, and content warnings will be provided.


Eugene Public Library is giving away FREE BOOK BOXES to Rainbow Reads participants, which include one of our discussion books, a book mark, discussion questions, and surprise goodies. All yours to keep!

Stop by the library or sign up online to pick up this month’s book, and to sign up for future book boxes to be shipped to your house.

If the library runs out of giveaways and rentals, or you live outside of the Eugene/Springfield Metro area, Wordcrafters has digital and audio books available for the reading group to ensure all readers have access.
