Next Meeting: Monday, November 11, 2019
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Guest Speaker: Shauna Koszegi
Join us for an informal discussion with Shauna Koszegi about how public libraries are serving LGBTQ+ patrons in Dane County and how LGBT Books to Prisoners is serving the LGBTQ+ community who are incarcerated across the the nation. Shauna says, "As a white, queer person, identity affects everything I do. I seek to foster community within Sun Prairie and Madison and look forward to talking about why prison abolition is necessary."
Shauna is an Adult Services Librarian at Sun Prairie Public Library, co-author of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's Inclusive Services Assessment and Guide, and organizer of a non-profit collective in Madison called LGBT Books to Prisoners, which sends books and other resources free of charge to folks who incarcerated.
*Meetings are typically on the first Monday of each month.
The LGBTQ community and their families deserve to be safe and secure no matter where they live, work, study, pray, or play. Request one of our 5" window clings to let others know that yours is a welcoming environment.
