Dr. Kelly McGinnis Library

The oldest of its kind in Canada, Kind Space is fiercely proud to house this “more than fabulous” resource centre. Our library was named in 2002 in honour of Dr. Kelly McGinnis, an active member of the Ottawa-Carleton HIV Primary Care Group, and renowned in the queer community for his help during the AIDS crisis in the 1980s and early 1990s. You can learn more about Dr. McGinnis here.

Dr. McGinnis had a steadfast commitment to the queer community and to Kind Space (formerly Pink Triangle Services). For that, we will always honour him.

The library is currently closed because of the pandemic and our recent move. The library will be open for browsing and borrowing in July 2021.
