We are proud to share that we are one of 25 libraries chosen to participate in @ALALibrary and @NEHgov’s Let’s Talk About: Women’s Suffrage opportunity! These books and programs will get us talking about the history of women’s suffrage in the U.S. Learn more about these titles, discuss them with a local scholar, and participate in related programs through the month of July. The first 8 registrants for each book discussion will get a free copy of the book, so go to kckpl.org and register now!
