Out Books On Wheels is a free lending library of over 4,000 LGBTQ titles located within the Sexual Minorities Archives. The library includes adult and young-adult fiction and non-fiction books, back-issued periodicals, and movies. No membership or library card required.


Out Books On Wheels was acquired by SMEF, Inc., to continue a vital service that began as a mobile lending library for LGBTQ elders. Today, Out Books On Wheels volunteers continue to deliver an incredible range of LGBTQ-themed books to LGBTQ seniors and youth at community locations throughout Western Massachusetts.

You can access this lending library on-location at the Archives House in Holyoke. To make an appointment to visit, please Contact Us. Or, if you would like to arrange for book deliveries to your community organization or event, please contact outbooks@sexualminoritiesarchives.org.
