Mission and Purpose

The Arkansas Queer Alliance for Libraries (AQuALib), an Arkansas Library Association community of interest, supports library workers and libraries in making our spaces, collections, and programs inclusive and welcoming to all. This group is open to members of the LGBTQ+ community as well as allies, and aims to create resources to assist libraries facing challenges or community controversy due to the inclusion of LGBTQ+ resources and programming.
