Inglenook Branch Library Hosting Women of Inglenook Appreciation Program March 16
On Friday, March 16, at 6:30 p.m., the Inglenook Branch Library is hosting an appreciation program for women highlighting the important role the women (“Hidden Figures”) of Inglenook play in the community.
An Expression of Appreciation for the Women of the Inglenook Community is part of the Inglenook Library’s March observance of National Women’s History Month. Friday’s celebration will include a showing of the hit movie Hidden Figures, about African American women who were trailblazers at NASA during the early 1960s space program.
It continues a quarterly event that Branch Manager Karnecia Williams began a year ago, providing meals and speakers on various topics. Williams said the quarterly gatherings are designed to “pay tribute to the hardworking women of Inglenook who juggle raising families, jobs, paying bills, and performing other duties that leave many feeling depleted and exhausted.”
Inglenook’s Appreciation for Women programs were a 2017 recipient of the BPL Board of Trustee’s Innovative & Cool Award which helps fund library activities that benefit the community.
Inglenook Library is hosting three Women’s History Month programs in March. On March 5, Girls of Promise with Purpose, a monthly girls mentoring group led by Elvira Davis, held a program called “Spring into Action” in which Davis taught the young ladies how their actions can impact their lives.
On Wednesday, March 21, at 3:30 p.m., the Readers Are Leaders Book Club will celebrate Women’s History Month. The youth club will read and discuss the lives of women who have impacted the world.
