March is Women's History Month and we are celebrating here at Jacksonville Public Library with not only books for adults and children, but with some awesome free programs! The 2019 theme for Women's History Month is "Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence."

To Infinity and Beyond

Taylor Richardson at Pablo Creek Library holding the book Star WatchIt all started with a book for local teen Taylor Richardson and now her sights are set on Mars, with a couple of stops in between.

Women in Lit!

March is Women’s History Month. What’s the best way to celebrate? By giving major props to some of the best female authors and books about women…and maybe cheering on your fellow lady friends too!

While these two lists are nowhere near comprehensive, they are a great place to start!
