Together with PFLAGCP-NWI, we are hosting a social, support, education, & networking space for LGBTQ+ teens & their allies. Teens (12-18) are welcome. Parents/guardians can meet concurrently.

The Crown Point/Northwest Indiana chapter of PFLAG is leading a monthly social & networking time for LGBTQ+ teens and their allies (PFLAG provides support, education, and advocacy for family, friends, allies, and members of the LGBTQ community). Meetings will be held on the last Thursday of each month, unless otherwise announced.

Parents/guardians are welcome to stay at the library during the teens’ session. A separate meeting room (Meeting Room C) has been set up for this optional “Parents’ Networking” time.

Teen meetings will focus mainly on social time and activities, but will also include introductions, educational talks/resources, and group discussions. Teens are also more than welcome to bring their own topics and questions for discussion.

About the branch

The Merrillville branch library encompasses over 114,000 sq ft of electronic and print resources, and visual and musical collections. The library offers free WIFI, public internet computers, rooms for quiet study, and public meeting rooms. Our vast collections of Lake County history and genealogy sources make the Merrillville branch a popular destination for research by visitors from all around the country.

Merrillville branch has three fantastic floors of informational and recreational materials. The main floor contains our popular collection of new books, large-print material, magazines and newspapers, teen, anime, and an enormous selection of music and DVDs. Our Genealogy Room has numerous resources including microfilm of local newspapers, obituary indexes, and many other historical resources. Our Book Sale room, open during select hours Monday-Saturday, is full of unique finds. Merrillville Branch is also home to our Talking Books Department, which serves residents with physical or visual disabilities.

The Upper Level includes tables for quiet study, a tremendous reference collection, our “Indiana Room” for specialized Hoosier historical research, and our locally known statue “The Reader” by artist Hermann Gurfinkel.

The entire lower level houses our bright and airy Children's Department where children will find fun games, books, music and magazines to fulfill their reading pleasure as well as attend engaging kids’ programs. This is also where our public meeting rooms are located, where our library events and programs are held.
