Explore Kink and Tantra

This weekend we have two extended educational events where the extra time allows you to delve deeper into the topic and try and then practice your new skills. We have received a few requests for more tickets to Saturday’s Explore BDSM & Kink. We have opened up a few more spaces so that people can pay for their entry at the door, though we don’t have any more swag bags available.

Announcing the Friends of the Library Project!

The Friends of the Library project is created to support and enhance the Pacific Northwest Library for Sex-Positive Culture. Our first project is to fund a digital ebook lending collection for the library by soliciting pledges and creating fundraisers such as auctions. Our goal for this project is $4000 per year.

Volunteer opportunities range from regular shifts during public library hours to working behind the scenes to create signage, maintain websites and social media accounts, market special events, assist in curating and processing incoming donations, and more!

Join the Friends of the Library and help us continue to be the sexiest library in the world! Just email us at [email protected] and let us know how you want to be involved – by making a one-time or monthly pledge, by volunteering in the library, or by working on marketing or social media.
