Harry Harris Library

At the Harry Harris LGBT+ library, our aim is to provide access to material you’d otherwise struggle to get hold of: whether it’s academic studies, autobiographies or hard-to-find music, novels and films that feature people like you.

The library is part of the Liberation Library which contains books from the LGBT+, Women’s and Disabled Campaigns. It’s housed in the SU lounge in the Students’ Unions’ building at 17 Mill Lane, CB2 1RX. To borrow a book from the library, simply choose a book, fill out a loan form, and drop it in the box at the bottom of the bookcase. The standard loan time for books is two weeks, but there’s no late charge. If you need any help using the library or finding a text, please ask the receptionist.

The library is named after Harry Harris, the trans rep during most of 2011. He was a neurobiologist and an award-winning poet. He was absolutely dedicated to helping people find a sense of community and their own words and was instrumental in encouraging us to put this collection together. We’re sorry he isn’t here to see it.
