Books and Audio/Visual Donations

The Des Moines Pride Center has a library collection of over ______ items and is continuing to grow. We have no formal acquisitions budget. All items have been donated by patrons and supporters of Pride Center. These contributions of new or gently used books, audio/visual materials, and periodicals have made the Des Moines Pride Center a true community library by and for all who participate.

Donate items for collections or booksale: If you would like to help the Des Moines Pride Center continue to grow further, please donate your books, audio/visual materials, or periodicals. Non-LGBTQ* books, and audio/visual materials or LGBTQ* books and audio/visual materials materials already in the collection will go to the booksale which raises funds for Pride Center’s operations. Donations can be dropped off at the Des Moines Pride Center during our open hours.
