The space is free to use for reading or studying. To take materials out of the library, a Qmunity membership is needed. The general cost is $25/year, but accommodations can easily be made for those with lower incomes.
We welcome donations of queer-related books, magazines, and DVDs only. These can be dropped off at the library or at reception when the library is closed. Please see our wishlist for suggested items.
Queer material (especially pamphlets, memorabilia, periodicals, artifacts) of any age with local- or BC-interest might be valuable to the BC Gay & Lesbian Archives. Email Ron Dutton for more information.
Generally, donors are responsible for bringing material to QMUNITY. Once donated, that material becomes property of QMUNITY. QMUNITY will determine how best to use the material, and reserves the right to refuse, sell, or give-away anything that is ultimately deemed unsuitable for our collection.
