Women's History Month Display Sign

Every month is Women’s History Month at the Library!  You can find resources on women’s history, struggles, and achievements throughout the Library.

March was first recognized as Women’s History Month in the US in 1987.  International Women’s Day (March 8) is rooted in early 20th century labor movements and was recognized by the UN in 1977.
