In addition to being the first American woman in space, Sally Ride was
an accomplished author of astronomy books for children. You can check out
the juvenile non-fiction written by Ride and her collaborators in the SJPL catalog.
In 1987, a United States Congressional resolution was passed designating March as Women's History Month. This is a great opportunity to learn about and recognize women who have made a positive impact in the world. In this spirit, a number of San Jose Public Library locations are offering a Women's History Quiz highlighting some of these inspirational women. Anyone 12 years old and older is welcome to pick up a quiz, return it to the library anytime during March, and win prizes including bookmarks, books, and possibly a $20 Target gift certificate. Alviso and Joyce Ellington Branches are among the libraries presenting this program. Check it out at the library!
