POSTPONED: Teen Suffragette Debate


As of 3/13/2020: The Nesmith Library will suspend all library programs and meeting room usage through March, so this program has been postponed. We take this step out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of our patrons and staff, and will be further evaluating the situation as it evolves. Please continue to check this page, or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for further updates. Thank you for your patience.


No registration necessary / Grades 6-12

Can you believe that during the fight for women's suffrage, there were some women who didn't want to be able to vote? Michelle Obama once said, "No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half its citizens."

Visit the Nesmith Library on Friday, March 20, at 3:30PM to delve deeper into why women had to fight so hard for the right to vote, on the hundredth anniversary of that historic victory! Pizza and drinks will be served, while supplies last. This program is for teens in grades 6-12, and no registration is necessary.

Questions? Contact Teen Services Librarian Molly at mpevna@nesmithlibrary.org.
