March is Women's History Month

In honor of Woman's History Month, the SAPL KIDS electronic bookshelf for March features biographies of famous American Women. Woman's History Month began as Woman's History Week in 1980 thanks to a proclamation signed by President Jimmy Carter. You can find out more about the contributions of women at the National Woman's History Project website. If you visit their Biography Center, you'll find short sketches of the women the project has honored over the last thirty years. Entries at the Biography Center may inspire you to read more about some of the women who have changed history.
