March 8 is International Women’s Day. Take a few minutes throughout the month of March to celebrate the women who empower you, using the hashtag #YouAreEmpowerment. Learn more about how women’s empowerment leads to equality.
We’re kicking off our celebrations this Saturday with films about girls and women all month long. Our Free Flicks are always (go figure!) FREE and no registration is required. Just drop in to Central Library on Saturday afternoons at 2 pm. Bring your own snacks and drinks, or stop in to Hacienda Coffee in the Reading Lounge.

We’ve also got a important event on Wednesday, March 10. What would the world be like if everyone was included? What are local companies doing to change the ratio of women and visible minorities in STEM careers? What are your own unconscious biases? Join us for a networking event and what is sure to be a fascinating discussion with the local women and men who are working to Change the Ratio. Seating is limited, register now.
The library offers plenty of ways to celebrate your own empowerment and growth, all year long. Learn a new tech skill. Find out how to live off your land, or what you need to know before buying your first home. Take a Curvy Yoga class.
Or, upgrade your leadership skills by reading
Kirstine Stewart’s memoir, Our Turn.
We’re thrilled to announce that Kirstine will be at Central Library
on April 15 for a special Friday evening event.
Seating is limited; registration opens on March 15.
