OUT MetroWest has a large collection of materials available to lend to youth and those who care about them. We provide access to informational pamphlets, non-fiction and fiction books, and films. These materials are currently housed in our Wellesley space, but we can also provide materials upon request at our Framingham and Newton locations. Simply send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what type of material you’d like to borrow!
In addition to our own collection of materials, we are including a list of web resources that you may find helpful. We’re not responsible for the content of these websites, but we believe that you may find some of them of interest.
