All year round, the Library champions women writers, artists, academics and professional leaders in their fields, and Glen Park Branch Library invites you to shine a light on HERstory with us during Women’s History Month this March.
Glen Park as we know it wouldn’t exist without the tireless advocacy of some amazing women. We’re excited to open our monthlong exhibition of the Glen Park Women Hall of Fame with a special lecture and Q&A on Wednesday, March 1st at 6pm with Evelyn Rose, founder, of the Glen Park Neighborhoods History Project. Join us over light snacks to learn all about Glen Park’s rich legacy of historic women who strove to make a difference in their local communities and beyond.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it to the lecture; we’re excited to host this installation of information-packed panels highlighting 21 women linked with the Glen Park district, either through residence or other association, throughout the month of March. Visit anytime we’re open — now seven days a week!
Wednesday, March 15th at 6pm, we continue our new monthly movie club for grownups, 2nd Floor Flix, with a showing of The Headless Woman (La mujer sin cabeza) in Spanish with English closed captions. After hitting something with her car, a bourgeois Argentine woman’s life slowly descends into paranoia and isolation, as she fears she may have killed someone. The Headless Woman examines the intricacies of class status and the role of women in a male-dominated society. You may bring light snacks and covered drinks to this showing.
Join us at one of our storytimes, now on offer Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11am, where we may honor and acknowledge the contributions of women and the experience of being female. Browse our shelves for special activities and displays related to women’s history, or place a hold on a title recommended by library staff. Consider participating in one of our other in-branch programs as well.
Are there other programs you’d like to see us offer at the library? Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your recommendations.
Of course, we’re not the only SFPL branch celebrating women’s contributions this month. Participate in one of the many women’s interest programs, events, and exhibits at any of our sister locations. Themes center around women as groundbreakers, feminism, the women’s movement and much more.
