March is Women's History Month
This year, the Women's Studies Department has created a display that recognizes women of character, commitment and creativity. It also celebrates women of courage who took up the banner (in this case, the T-shirt) to participate in the "Clothesline Project".
The Clothesline Project (CLP) is a program started on Cape Cod, MA, in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women.  It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt.  They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women. For more information, see: http://www.clotheslineproject.org/





Celebrating St. Patrick's Day with a display about Irish Music.
Come to the third floor of the Library this month to see a display of information and photos of contemporary and traditional Irish musical instruments.  There is also a selection of Irish CD's by various bands. Before you leave, pick up a flyer that lists Irish bars and pubs where you can go to celebrate St. Patty's Day!
