Home ยป COVID-19


Starting on July 15, 2021 the Sexual Minorities Archives reopened to visitors and researchers by appointment only.

For the safety of our volunteers and live-in curator, you must wear a mask to enter the SMA and practice social distancing while there. We are still limiting group visits to five people or less.

Our free LGBTQIA+ lending library, Out Books On Wheels, is also open for
your book-borrowing needs.

We will continue to provide contactless, side-porch pickup of books from the lending library, by arrangement. Simply visit the Out Books On Wheels page, and read the catalogs linked there to choose the titles that interest you.

You may schedule a visit to the SMA, to Out Books On Wheels, or to the Leslie Feinberg Library through our online request form or by phone at 413-538-4750.

We will continue to monitor developments in Massachusetts and, if necessary, adjust our visiting guidelines with your safety in mind, first.

We look forward to seeing you and to serving the educational needs of the LGBTQIA+ communities again!
