Women's History Month | Carla Hayden
Happy March! Did you know that March is Women's History Month? Honestly, I only found that out recently haha. How cool is it that I got to celebrate Black History Month and now Women's History Month :)
I'd love to highlight a few women this month. Let's start off with Dr. Carla Hayden, the 14th Librarian of Congress.
Carla Hayden was sworn in as the 14th Librarian of Congress on September 14, 2016. Nominated by President Barack Obama, Dr. Hayden was the first woman and the first African American to lead the national library.

Dr. Hayden was the first African American to receive Library Journal’s Librarian of the Year Award in recognition of her outreach services at the Pratt Library, which included an after-school center for Baltimore teens offering homework assistance and college and career counseling. She received a B.A. from Roosevelt University and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the Graduate Library School of the University of Chicago. Source
Let every day this month serve as a daily reminder that you are a woman of worth. Your value means more than you could ever know. Whether you're single, married, a mother... every woman has worth.
