We honor women’s history
March is Women’s History Month — an event you can take part in at your library (or online from anywhere) with library resources including books, movies and reference materials from our online databases.
Read biographies of remarkable women — or novels by and about women. Watch movies that tell women’s stories. Or conduct research on any topic or person of your choosing.
This year’s theme is Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business. Learn more about Women’s History Month at the National Women’s History Project. Check out the resources from the Library of Congress and other national archives.
And as always, look into your local history — women have played a major role in the Keys from the very beginning. Visiting our online photo archive is always a good place to start. The photo here came from the Porter Grooms Families Collection — preserved in scrapbooks by a Keys woman, Mary Louisa Porter Grooms.
