Director’s Blog: March 2023

March is here, the month when we'll (finally) welcome spring.

TPL celebrates Women's History Month in March, acknowledging the many accomplishments of women in Tacoma and around the world.  I hope you'll check out the events we have planned for Women's History Month, and peruse booklists, local history collections, and more.

I also invite you to participate in Read Across Tacoma Week by posting a photo of yourself on social media reading. Here is my photo from 2022, reading outside the Wheelock Library, as an example. Please use the hashtag #readacrosstacoma and tag our Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter so we may share your photo!

Read Across Tacoma Week celebrates our shared love of reading. We are honored to host this for the second year with the Tacoma Public Library Foundation, who supports the work of TPL through fundraising and advocacy. You can support the Foundation by shopping their online merchandise store (use code READACROSSTACOMA for 15% off March 6-10!). 

As always, thank you for supporting the library.
