Carmichael Library Celebrates Women's History Month

March is Women's History Month and your campus library is recognizing this observance with a special display in the library's foyer.

Just inside the library's doors you'll find a selection of books and DVDs, as well as a collection of biographies highlighting famous women from Alabama and beyond.

Women's History Month Resources Online:
I'd like to acknowledge the many here in the library who assisted with this project, including Carey Heatherly, Kathy Lowe, and Patsy Sears, who all made contributions to our bibliography. Patsy also provided items for our display. The display itself is the creative work of Mary Seagle and our Technical Services student assistants Cierra, David, and Tiffany.

Finally, I'd like to take a moment to recognize Carmichael's own Barbara Belisle, who graciously consented to the use of her story for this first Women's History Month display. To those who don't know Ms. Belisle's story, I hope you'll have a chance to come in to the library and read about it. Thank you, Barbara, for sharing your story, and for your continued contributions to the Montevallo community.
