LGBTQIA Pride Month Events

LGBTQIA Pride Month Events at UCF Libraries

While every day is a time to celebrate your identity and orientation, June is a notable month set aside to loudly and proudly celebrate with and for the LGBTQIA community. Here at UCF Libraries we are loudly proud of everyone at UCF who identifies as part of the queer community. In recognition of and support for our LGBTQIA Knights, we are hosting a series of displays and events including a UCF Remembers display from the Pulse Collection, a featured bookshelf, three film screenings and discussions, and our new Speak Your Truth: A Queer History of UCF project.

New Books at John C. Hitt

May New Books at the John C. Hitt Library

New books to the left of you. New books to the right of you. New books on the shelves. New books all around.

New books enter the UCF Libraries system on a regular basis. At the John C. Hitt Library, we select those with interesting titles, eye-catching dust jackets, or timely topics to feature on a display. The books range in subject from photography, science, and history to poetry, novels, and biographies. The display, which is next to the seating area at the Research & Information Desk, changes on an almost weekly basis.

Stop by. Maybe there will be one you want to take home with you.

Here is a small selection of the 50 books that are currently on the display:
