We are coming to a close of our appreciation for all women in the U.S. as Women's History Month is almost over here at Long Beach Public Library. I want to remind everyone of the importance of women in our society. How wonderful is it to know that women ranging from Hillory Clinton to Janis Joplin, Maya Lin to Rachel Carson, Beyonce to Ellen Ochoa who have all made our country a great, honorable and noteworthy place to be. I am proud to know that these among many other women - our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, children, and wives - have all influenced our lives for the better. Women in society help us every day: when we go to the grocery store, when we go to the bank, when we look up something on the internet, when we look at art, when we go to the doctor, when we use important and everyday inventions, when we need legal help, when we go to school, when we read a book, when we watch TV, when we listen to the radio or the news, and when we go to bed at night, it is often our mothers who tuck us in. How amazing is that?!
If you are a woman, be proud of the girls and women you are. And we should all be grateful for the women in our lives who help us every day!
Here are some good books written about and by female authors at our public library for you to enjoy at the close of this important month:
