The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center of Baltimore and Maryland (GLCCB) opened its ground floor to the public on Monday as a Welcome, Information and Drop-In Center. The space will be open from 12-6 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and from 12-3 p.m. on Tuesdays.

The space will house a modern computer lab and a free bookstore with mostly LGBT-themed books. The center encourages the community to come by, read a book, do school work or use the Internet and Wi-Fi in a welcoming environment.

“The Welcome and Information Center is a step in the right direction for the GLCCB and for the LGBT community,” said Matthew Thorn, interim executive director.

Staff and volunteers will be on hand to direct visitors and callers to support services and community resources as well as provide information on Baltimore businesses and social events.

Book donations are welcome during business hours.  Those interested in volunteering should visit GLCCB.org.
