Does you library offer programs that are specifically designed for women and/or girls. Women In Libraries (https://ftfinfo.wikispaces.com/Women+in+Libraries) published by ALA’s Feminist Task Force is looking for information about successful programming that your library has presented that was geared specifically for, or greatly benefitted, women and girls.
These can be special story hours of affinity programs, finance for women, craft circles or Feminist Art projects, celebrations or discussions around the Women’s March, or discussion and speakers about the #MeToo movement, among other ideas. We are interested in programs from all kinds of libraries: public, school, academic and, special libraries.
Women in Libraries wants to share the news about programs that benefit or are of interest to women and girls in our issue in early February. Please send an up to one page write-up about your program: what you did, who attended, any comments from patrons, or other information that you would like others to know about. This is a good time for us to raise awareness of the things that we do in libraries to support women in a million ways. It is time to share your successful ventures so we can applaud you and others can find ideas for new initiatives. Send articles to Dr. Dolores Fidishun, Editor, Women in Libraries at firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb. 1, 2018.
We hope to hear from you!
