Women's History Month

"Our History is Our Strength" is the 2011 theme of Women's History Month. March is an opportunity for us to focus on the achievements of women past and present, the famous and the less familiar. At Carnegie-Stout Public Library, we've gathered together resources aid in the discovery and celebration of all women.

We encourage you to stop by the display of books and movies near the Recommendations Desk on the First Floor, and to check out the links to online resources below.
