About meI spent the first part of my working life at a large not-for-profit educational testing company, before going to graduate school to earn a master's degree in library and information science. I now manage the library and records management program for an architectural and engineering firm. My partner and I have been together for over a decade and we have a beautiful cat named Princess.

About my libraryLike most people, my library reflects my life and interests. My undergraduate degree is in Political Science, so I have a lot of books about elections and politics. One of my oldest hobbies is genealogy, particularly of European royal and noble families. My library contains numerous books about royalty, the British peerage, European nobility, and prominent American families. I also have a lifelong interest in classical and European history as well as geography.

I have a weakness for maps and genealogical tables in books. A book that has one or both may be in my library even if it has no other redeeming feature. I have been known to buy a book simply for a great map or family tree.

I enjoy mysteries, science fiction, fantasy, and the novels of Anthony Trollope.

Undoubtedly, the largest part of my collection contains gay-themed works. As an out and proud gay man, this is an essential aspect of my library and life today.

I enjoy books in series, so once I find an author that I like, I often acquire all of his or her works.

Hello Matthew,

I recently became the chair of the Library Committee at the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Pittsburgh. If you are ever in the mood to weed your library we'd like to have any of your items that might be of GLBT interest. We're looking for books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, directories, etc. If you send us duplicate items we'll put them in our book sale. We're also starting a lending collection of adult (XXX) DVDs and video. Send those to us if you are so inclined.

We'll reimburse you for your costs if you ship via US Mail. We'll also send you a letter acknowledging the value of your contribution for tax purposes.

Check out the GLCC Library here on LT and become a fan of the GLCC Library on FaceBook.

I hope you'll consider donating to the GLCC Library of Pittsburgh.




If you can't donate to us please donate to your local GLBT Library. I'm sure they need your help too.
I wish I had Trebizond : the last Greek empire of the Byzantine era, 1204-1461. I have been looking for it for a long time.

You lucky man
