Lavender Library Archives & Cultural Exchange (LLACE)


We loan books, periodicals, and DVD videos of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender interest to members, collect items that preserve the LGBT experience in the Sacramento area and sponsor lectures, exhibits and cultural events for the community.

We maintain materials in a variety of formats:

  • Books (15,000+ titles in circulation)
  • Archival Collections (original documents)
  • Artwork by local artists
  • Audio/Visual (2,000 recordings)
  • Ephemera (posters, programs, clothing, etc.)
  • Magazines (1950's to present)
  • Pamphlets and File articles
  • Photographs

Our Community Survey Is Open for Your Feedback

Each month we have a different topic to help diversify our collection. Of course we still accept books or videos of all LGBTQIAP topics, but each month focuses on an area we are looking to grow. Click HERE for our Book Drive Wishlist!
