Friends’ March Reading Challenge – Women’s History

By FPLFriend_Susan

Women’s History is the theme of this month’s Friends’ Reading Challenge. 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. Since 90%+ of the Friends of the Frisco Library are women, it seemed like a good month to celebrate women’s contributions.

The Bookshop has a nice selection of books on the 2024 Friends’ Reading Challenge Recommendations that would suit the challenge this month. So stop in the Bookshop to check out the offerings! Pivotal women from the likes of Malala to Rosa Parks and more are highlighted in the collection we have culled. Of course, if you have your own book about an impactful woman then, by all means, read away!

Stop by the Bookshop before March 31st to enter the Reading Challenge by telling us what book you enjoyed. We’ll select one lucky reader to win a $5 Book Bucks card that can be used at the Friends’ Bookshop.
