Women's History Month is being celebrated at the Nicholson Public Library during March.
"Celebrate the overlooked contributions of women in history at the Nicholson Public Library," library manager Rhonda O'Keefe states. "Our ever-growing collection includes books on the amazing unsung heroes of our country," library manager Rhonda O'Keefe states. "Meet the women who helped win the Revolutionary War, Jackie Mitchell who struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig or find out about Kate Warne, the female agent who smuggled Abraham Lincoln into Washington, D.C. Stop by today and learn more about these fantastic female warriors.
The Nicholson Public Library will be collecting canned/boxed food for the Banks-Jackson Food Bank. The drive will run through March 31. In honor of the PBS Daniel Tiger Neighborhood television series, each child who brings in a canned/boxed food will receive a certificate of appreciation.
"This is a great opportunity to connect with our community and help others at the same time," O'Keefe states.
