Happy Women’s History Month!

By FPL_Marissa

This month remembers historical and modern women around the world who have made important strides in society, whether in science, art, sports, women’s rights, and more. There are many ways to learn about these women through online resources and through books here at the library.

The web pages below are introductory resources from National Geographic for kids to learn about the history of why we celebrate Women’s History Month, and about iconic women heroes.
