Come and Celebrate Women’s History Month!

Since 1995, March has been Women’s History Month in the United States! During this time, we observe and acknowledge, as well as empower and encourage the role women play in American history. The accomplishments from women suffrage to the #MeToo movement have transformed our society to give women more agency over their lives.

Join us for one of many WHM’s celebrations like Women’s Self Defense, Women Back to Work, Cross-stitch HERstory, and much more!

Also, enjoy some great staff recommendations for reading and viewing!
