This Library houses the oldest GLBT collection in Indiana. Over 6,600 items are in the NIDL circulating collection of books and video tapes. Our archives hold local and regional GLBT history that ranges from articles and newsletters to pictures, t-shirts, buttons and more. The archives are precious history that would otherwise be discarded or hidden from view if it were not carefully kept and preserved in this library. The NIDL's claim to being the "Oldest GLBT Collection In Indiana" can be found on our history article below. In 2010 the Fort Wayne Community Educational Center Inc. voted to concentrate on becoming a library and adopted the Northeast Indiana Diversity Library as its mission.
