LILAC (Lesbian Information, Library and Archives Centre) is Wellington's lending library for women whose primary relationships are 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.
