Libraries Celebrate Women’s History Month
The month of March marks the national celebration of Women’s History Month. In commemoration, the SU Libraries are hosting a number of exhibits in its spaces. In addition to a book display on the first floor of Bird Library by and about women who persisted, other exhibits include:
- Women’s suffrage exhibit: This exhibit, which commemorates the centennial of women’s suffrage in New York State, can be found on the first floor of Bird Library. Currently on loan from the Central New York Libraries Resources Council (CLRC), the exhibit will be rotating to other public and academic libraries in the region throughout the year.
- “Forces of Nature” exhibit: These pop art-style posters from the Perimeter Institute, commemorating pioneering women of science, can be found in the Carnegie Library. From two-time Noble Prize-winner Marie Curie to “The First Lady of Physics,” Chieng-Shiung Wu, these women have changed the world of science through their ground-breaking contributions and persistence.
