YA Reads for Women’s History Month
Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987. After the 100 year milestone passage of the 19th Amendment legally protecting women’s right to vote, women continue to be trailblazers, pioneers, innovators, and leaders in their fields. Join us this month as we honor and observe women’s history.

Rightfully Hers: 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment In honor of the 100th anniversary of Women’s right to vote in the US, our library system applied for and received The Rightfully Hers Pop-Up Display created by the National Archives. Because our library is closed to in-person visits we turned the Pop-up display into a short video.
