March is Women's History Month

March is Women's History Month,and it's a great time to reflect on all of the ways that women have left their mark on the world. A fun way to learn and celebrate women in history is through the movies, whether you're watching biographies on iconic women, or learning about their struggles through documentaries and historic films. The website lists 50 movies and documentaries celebrating women and their history.

Here are a few available in the HCPL online catalog:

Amelia

Amelia Earhart, the young aviatrix who won the Distinguished Flying Cross for being the first woman pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

Youngest Library Cardholder!

Quentin Macala Get His Own Library CardLibrary customers are getting younger every day! In January, staff at the Barbara Bush Library were pleased to welcome Quentin Macala, son of Gina and Josh, who came to the library at 8 days old to get his own library card! His parents obviously know the importance of getting a young reader off to an early start!! Mom Gina is a former shelving assistant at the library, so young Quentin has a built-in fan club among the staff.
