Out at the Library celebrates the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Library's James C. Hormel Gay & Lesbian Center by highlighting its collection and offering a rare look into what an archives is and how it ensures the legacy of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities. From boots worn by cross-dressing Civil War surgeon Dr. Mary Walker to classic GLBT pulp paperbacks to the 1978 appointment book of assassinated City Supervisor Harvey Milk, the objects and stories in Out at the Library offer compelling views of remarkable and ordinary lives.
