Pride exhibition at the University Library in Växjö and Kalmar
If you want to immerse yourself in LGBTQ topics, visit the exhibition at the University Library where new and old books within the subject are displayed. Some of them are from the RFSL library (The Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Rights), parts of which we have taken over. The exhibition is on from May 7th to May 20th. In Växjö it is located near the information desk, and in Kalmar it is in the entrance hall. Naturally, you can also borrow LGBTQ-related books.
