Abstract: Poster presented virtually at the 2021 Association of College and Research Libraries Conference from April 13-16, 2021. Discover how to cultivate an LGBTQIA+ inclusive environment at your academic or public-facing library, with this example of low stakes and high impact programming. In this poster presentation, we’ll show you how we adapted and implemented a Queer Cafe library event at [a 4-year degree-granting public university] and the importance of such events for academic and public-facing libraries, and will share our event outcomes and lessons learned to help you implement similar programming at your own institution.
