The James C. Hormel LGBTQIA Center is the gateway to the Library’s broader collections documenting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual and allies’ history and culture, with a special emphasis on the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Center also collaborates with other library departments and community organizations to sponsor a diverse array of exhibitions and public programs. 

The Hormel Center Reading Room on the 3rd floor of the Main Library serves as the home-base of the Center and houses a selection of non-circulating books and magazines.

The Center librarians are at the 3rd floor General Collections desk.
