March is Women’s History Month! The celebration originated in 1981, when Congress passed legislation that authorized the President to proclaim the week of March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week”. In 1987, the week turned into a month. Since then, presidents continue to proclaim the month of March as Women’s History Month, in order to celebrate the contributions and influence of women to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States.

Here at the library, we join in the celebration of Women’s History Month by featuring some of our favorite new books from women writers below. Plus, since we are closed for Spring Break, check out this Women’s History Month LIST featuring ebooks and audiobooks available anytime on SORA.
