Their duties included ferrying planes, towing targets to give ground and air gunners practice shooting with live ammunition. They also tested planes for sabotage and flew new planes to ensure instruments were safe. Come learn more about what this amazing group of women did for our country.

There's a database for that....

Where can you go to find information for your school projects and reports? Where is a one-stop shop to find authoritative, credible and current information?  Where are you likely to find information that you can trust? Where can you find information easily, quickly and even gives you the citation format of your choosing already formatted for you in a variety of citation formats?  The answer is Texshare, that’s where. The Harris County library has access to TexShare Databases, which are e-resources licensed for the exclusive use of Texas libraries and our customers. Start with Harris County Library Databases for homework help, health or business information, academic journals, popular magazines, genealogy, or job and career development.
