Empowering Women Through Outreach and Library Resources

There’s a new woman in charge of the Library of Congress! Dr. Carla Hayden was sworn in as the 14th Librarian of Congress of the United States on September 14, 2016. Dr. Hayden is the first woman, the first African American, and the first professional librarian to hold this post. She is also the first professional librarian to be confirmed in more than 60 years.

She serves as an inspiration to many! Learn more about her here.

The staff of the Business, Technology, and Periodicals Department works with the community to share library resources with our patrons. The idea of empowering women brings to mind a great upcoming opportunity offered by Manpower. The Milwaukee Public Library will be at this event. Details here:
