Honors and Recognitions

People pointing to an award

Happy Women’s History month! In honor of this month, we would like to invite you to check out some of our historic suffrage materials from our ephemera files. If you are curious about women’s history, you might also find our Women in California research guide interesting. We are also continuing to draw attention to our Medicine in California guide in honor of California’s tireless medical professionals and we named Stanislaus County and Modesto as our County and City of the Month! Please feel free to check out any of these resources or come by the History Room to see our materials in person!
