Glow maintains a collection of several hundred books and magazines in our resource library. Additionally, Glow has a number of movies and TV series on DVD.
Library resources may be borrowed by the general public for a three-week period. The library resources that may be taken out are books and DVDs, unless there is a note on the book indicating it cannot be taken out. Magazines and reference books may not be taken out of the Centre. Simply visit the Glow Centre and an office volunteer will be happy to help you sign the resource out. It is necessary to leave your name and some contact information to ensure that resources are returned. Let us know if you know of any additional magazines relevant to the Centre and we will look into getting them.
Resources in the library that are not allowed to be taken out include: magazines and reference books. You may use these resources within the Glow Centre.

Let us know if you know of any additional magazines relevent to the centre and we will look into getting them!
If you are looking for a specific title which we don’t have, Glow Centre and phone line volunteers can usually help you track down the resource. The UW libraries, the city libraries (Waterloo and Kitchener), the UW Bookstore, and many other local bookstores all carry small collections of queer titles. If you are looking for a specific title which we don’t have, Glow Centre volunteers can usually help you track down the resource.
