Young Adult LGBTQ+ Books to Add to Your TBR Pile

Posted on June 22, 2021

by Joyce S

We often look for ourselves in the books we read. A great book resonates with us as we empathize with a protagonist’s struggles and triumphs. But a reading experience feels lonely when there are no characters in the book like you.

In continual support of the We Need Diverse Books campaign, we are proud to be able to help with this endeavor through these titles here (and beyond).

A Library card and PIN will be required to access many of the resources listed.  Need help with your card or PIN?  Contact your nearest location or call 419-259-5200. Need a new card?
