Celebrate Women’s History Month!
Don’t miss the new exhibit that will be up for the month of March on the fourth floor of the main library downtown. “Ladies of the Lights” tells the story of 50 Michigan women who who served the maritime community as lighthouse keepers with dedication and distinction from 1894 to 1954. The exhibit comes to us from the Michigan Women’s Historical Center in Lansing and was funded by the Grand Rapids Public Library Foundation.
Mark your calendars for Wed, March 23rd, when Patrica Majher, creator of the exhibit and author of the new book, Ladies of the Lights: Michigan Women in the U.S. Lighthouse Service, will present a program on these courageous women at 7:00pm in the auditorium, funded by the Vander Veen Center for the Book
