Celebrate Women's History Month with Kids & Teens!

Join us as we celebrate Women's History Month at Kenosha Public Library! 

Women’s History Month started as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed a law which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed a new law which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month," celebrating the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.

Book Display - Look for displays in each of the Youth Service Areas of our branches that feature fiction and nonfiction titles related to Women's History Month and celebrating women and girls, as well as a timeline of women's rights in the United States.
