March is Women's History Month

We hope you enjoyed our Olympics presentation! Let us know what you thought of it!

 

In the month of March, we will be celebrating Women’s History Month. Come visit our displays throughout the library, and help us add to them with the inspirational women in your life.

 

We've also just gotten some new anatomical models for you BMCC students to study in the library.

The library staff invites you to join us in making a wall of inspiration: Women We Know, Women who Matter. This is a place for us to honor women who have made a positive difference in our lives by sharing names, stories, pictures, and drawings of them. She can be a friend, family member, mentor, a woman in history or current events, colleague, neighbor . . . any woman who inspires you!  Non-identifying information is fine -- this is a fun, friendly activity and everyones's contribution is welcome! Can't make it into the library? Add virtual entries by posting comments to this post, then try these links for more info:

Here's a start to our virtual entries on the wall of inspiration:

Boudica, (also spelled Boadicea, pronounced "BOW-di-kuh") queen and leader of a Celtic uprising against the Romans in CE 60. Fearless and commanding, Boudica led her rebel army across middle England as they destroyed an entire Roman legion, razed London, and brought about the eventual replacement of the Roman governor. She was finally stopped by entrenched Romans at the Battle of Watling Street. I see her as an inspiration and exhortation to women to remember their strength of mind, spirit, and body: this brave Celt never let her gender or the world's perception of it stand in the way of fighting back, even against impossible odds.
