A Queer Library &

Community Hub

The Lavender Library is an all-volunteer-run lending library, archive and community space with LGBTQ+ books, films and more. We are a hub of learning and connection for Sacramento’s LGBTQ+ community.

A bookshelf full of various LGBTQ Books available at the Library.

Curbside Pick UP

An easy and safe way to check out queer books and films!

The Lavender Library is open for curbside pickups from 12pm-3pm every Sunday for patrons to check out books and DVDs.


No-contact delivery within a 1 mile radius of the library may also be possible - please reach out via email or social media!⁣

Due to the confined space of the library, we are not able to let anyone except our volunteers enter the premises. Our volunteers will be equipped with gloves and masks.

On March 13th, 2020 the Lavender Library had to shut their doors to their patrons accessing materials and unhoused community members that regularly sought respite in their space. For the safely of their volunteers the Lavender Library continues to be closed and as a result has been significantly impacted financially.
