We achieve our mission in part by maintaining and expanding our library. The FSPC Library has a broad collection of over 15,000 pieces—many rare and unusual—and is one of the largest of its kind in the world.
Our collection includes fiction, nonfiction and pulp-fiction books; magazines and periodicals; and comics and pictorials. There are carefully preserved reference and special collection books. In addition, there is a large media and pornography section.
Topics include human sexuality; sexual techniques; sacred sexuality; BDSM, polyamory, swinging, nudism and other sexual activities and practices; sexual health; gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer topics related to sexuality; erotic literature; photography and other images; sexual entertainment; sexual politics; body modification; and more.
Using the Library
The Library is open to the public (18+), with space for on-site reading and researching. It is organized by the Library of Congress system, and trained librarians will be on duty to assist you.
Patrons of the Library can check out materials for up to four weeks. Library cards are free to members of the CSPC. For the public, library cards cost $20.00 per year.

Donating to the Library
Our Library is sustained almost entirely by volunteer effort and generous donations.
We accept cash contributions as well as in-kind item donations. Our wish list of items needed for the Library can be found here.
Item donations to the library may be tax deductible.
Donated books and other items intended for the collection are professionally cataloged by the congressional system and are preserved in an orderly and safe environment.
Drop off small donations directly at the Library. For larger donations or items on our wish list, please contact us ahead of time to make arrangements.
The Library is housed at the Center for Sex Positive Culture. It is located at 1608 15th Ave. W., Seattle, WA 98119. The entrance is on the north side of the building.
