Finding what you want

The LGBTQ-themed authors and titles can all be found in Medway Libraries. If a particular title is not available at your local library it can be reserved by visiting a library or through the online catalogue. Medway Libraries are part of a consortium of libraries in the south-east, so if you cannot find what you want in Medway it can be reserved from one of the other library authorities.

The current collection of books can be found online here.

The lists below are not comprehensive so please search the catalogue to find out what other titles we have in stock. If you would like to recommend titles or authors to us, please fill in a comments card or send an email to chatham.library@medway.gov.uk.  We can’t promise to buy all suggested titles but will give them consideration.
