The Bernier LGBT Collection: Peter Bernier

Rainbow Link

The Bernier LGBT Collection was formally created in 2013, and the CBU Library has been receiving donations from Peter Bernier since at least 2006. The CBU Library owes a debt of gratitude to Peter for his continuing contributions, which have been provided through his organization, Rainbow Link.  All materials donated by Peter were chosen by the library from a list of available items.

Rainbow Link donates LGBT related books, periodicals and other materials to libraries and LGBT organizations to help raise awareness and study of LGBT related issues. If you are interested in making a contribution to the organization, or simply wish to peruse the monthly list of potential donations, visit Rainbow Link's website.
