Hi feminist friends,

An early Midwinter brings many surprising gifts, and one of them is extra
time to prepare your Women of Library History submissions! After discussing
the project at FTF's meeting, I've refreshed the Call for Submissions
<http://womenoflibraryhistory.tumblr.com/submit2016> and put up a new post
with more ideas and encouragement: "Submissions are Open for Women of
Library History 2016
<http://womenoflibraryhistory.tumblr.com/post/137685213070/submissions-are-open-for-women-of-library-history>
."

I love running this project because I love reading people's well-research
and/or personally impassioned tributes to our professional sisters and
foremothers. Last year, our new Women included Laura Howey
<http://womenoflibraryhistory.tumblr.com/post/112410246186/laura-howey>
(who lost her position as Head Librarian because she, like all women at the
time, was deprived of the right to vote); Dorothy Burnett Porter Wesley
<http://womenoflibraryhistory.tumblr.com/post/115209359265/dorothy-burnett-porter-wesley>
(who developed a major research collection focused on people of African
descent in the Americas); Mary Titcomb
<http://womenoflibraryhistory.tumblr.com/post/113426970270/mary-l-titcomb>
(who was an early bookmobile innovator); Alice Lougee Hagemeyer
<http://womenoflibraryhistory.tumblr.com/post/113253914938/alice-lougee-hagemeyer>
(a librarian and d/Deaf activist); and Linda McPherson
<http://womenoflibraryhistory.tumblr.com/post/112696434599/linda-mcpherson>
(a beloved community librarian who only became known to the world at large
when she was killed in a mudslide).

Please consider writing a piece for this year's project, and please pass
the word along to your local and state library groups, your progressive
library friends, etc. You're welcome to reach out to me with questions,
too, at this e-mail or at womenoflibraryhistory at gmail.com.

Historically yours,

Katelyn.
