March into Women’s History Month!

Celebrate Women’s History Month with children’s and young adult literature.  The Amelia Bloomer Project “highlights the power of the individual and the collective voices of women across time and around the world.”  Most Alkek Library copies of Amelia Bloomer Project titles are available in the 3rd floor Juvenile Collection, but some young adult level titles will be located in the General Collection on floors 5, 6 and 7.  Below are some recently recognized Amelia Bloomer Project titles:
