The breadth of gay fiction is beautiful and stunning. One reader asked NYPL librarians for "recommendations for gay fiction that is NOT erotica and also not just coming out stories." Here are our amazing picks! http://on.nypl.org/1BMA5A7

Librarians are some of our favorite people in the world, so we naturally fell in love with this salute to librarians. Here's our favorite part: "The author's fiercest ally in the battle for human enlightenment is the librarian. I salute them all." http://on.nypl.org/1xgw9Hu
From the moment I entered the hushed, sacred precinct of the Brownsville Children's Library in Brownsville, Brooklyn, back in the mid-1930s, I have been a passionate advocate of the public library....

Some books demand to be read more than once. Which books do you read over and over again? http://on.nypl.org/1GQ4QnC

In 2013, NYPL received an overdue book - that was borrowed in 1959! The book, Ideal Marriage, was returned with a note: "We found this book amongst my late brother-in-law's things. Funny thing is the book didn't support his efforts with his first (and only) marriage... it failed! No wonder he hid the book! So sorry!!
A shocked in-law" We say: better late than never! http://on.nypl.org/17jBktT
