March is Women’s History Month and we are celebrating with a lobby display, guest curated with help from Bentley’s Gloria C. Larson Center for Women and Business! Visit the library from 2/18/19– 3/31/19 to browse items in person. Many of these books, as well as additional women’s history and leadership titles, are available as eBooks and audiobooks via the library’s OverDrive digital collection.
This display encompasses many aspects of women’s history and empowering women’s advancement. Titles have been divided into two sections to help you browse and choose new books more easily.
- Looking Back: Learn about inspiring, historical women and the ways that they have led and changed the world. Find out about the history of women’s suffrage, early female entrepreneurs, and more.
- Looking Ahead: Get inspired to be a future leader by picking up titles that discuss current women’s issues and strategies for women at work. Titles in this section address the wage gap, leadership, female mentorship, the state of women in politics, and more.
Check back on the display often – we will update the title list as new acquisitions arrive and checked-out titles return to the library. If a title you want to read is checked out, remember to place a hold! If you’d like to see a list of all the titles on display, click here.

We’ll also be holding another Women’s History Month button-making event in mid-March, so stay tuned for more details!
