Inglenook Branch Library hosting Women of Inglenook Appreciation program March 16

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.-On Friday, March 16, the Inglenook Branch Library is hosting an appreciation program for women highlighting the important role the women “Hidden Figures” of Inglenook play in the  community.

The 6:30 p.m. program, “An Expression of Appreciation for the Women of the Inglenook Community,” is part of the Inglenook Library’s March observance of National Women’s History Month. Friday’s celebration will include a showing of the hit movie about African American women who were trailblazers at NASA during the early 1960s space program.  

It continues a quarterly event Branch Manager Karnecia Williams began a year ago, providing meals and speakers on various topics. Williams said the quarterly gatherings is designed to “pay tribute to the hard-working women of Inglenook who juggle raising families, jobs, paying bills, and performing other duties that leave many feeling depleted and exhausted.” 
 
Inglenook’s Appreciation for Women programs were a 2017 recipient of the BPL Board of Trustee’s Innovative & Cool Award which helps fund library activities that benefit the community.

Inglenook Library is hosting three Women’s History Month programs in March. On March 5, “Girls of Promise with Purpose,” a monthly girls mentoring group led by Elvira Davis, held a program called “Spring into Action” in which Davis taught the young ladies how their actions can impact their lives. 

On Wednesday, March 21, at 3:30 p.m., the “Readers Are Leaders Book Club” will celebrate Women’s History Month. The youth club will read and discuss the lives of women who have impacted the world.
