LILAC (Lesbian Information, Library and Archives Centre) is Wellington's lending library
for women-oriented women - women who form their primary relationships with women. It operates from
a room at 187 Willis Street (2nd floor) - see the Location
page for a map and bus routes to LILAC.
LILAC is a women-only space, although small children with their mums are okay.
Come in and look around the collection, join or renew your membership.
