Transgender Resource Collection

Serving, reflecting and welcoming

Transgender is an umbrella term that applies to people whose gender identity does not conform to what society has commonly associated with birth sex. Oak Park Public Library has created a groundbreaking collection to serve transgender people and everyone seeking information, including employers, medical providers, allies, friends, and family.
