Library Display | Women’s History Month

One of my favorite parts of being a librarian is doing book displays at my library! Here on my blog, I love sharing the behind the scenes of my displays, including everything you need to recreate the displays. If you’re a library worker, teacher, or bookseller, feel free to use this to make a display of your own!

About the display

Hi friends! March is Women’s History Month, so I of course had to do a display at my library.

Women’s History Month is a great chance to highlight a diverse range of books in your collection. I like to make my display a mix of non-fiction about women’s history, books about feminism, and YA fiction about girls & women making waves or fighting for change. Because women’s history isn’t only a thing of the past–we are making history every single day that we fight, resist, thrive, and exist.

What is most important to me is making sure my display isn’t merely focused on white cishet women’s history, which tends to dominate historical narratives. I want to make sure my display highlights queer & trans women, Muslim women, BIPOC women, and other experiences outside of the dominant narrative.

My display includes a letter-sized flyer in an acrylic sign holder, accompanied by a wide selection of YA books. Want to recreate it? You can download my flyer below for free, and you can resize it and print larger to work for your library space.

But also, remember that you can & should celebrate Women’s History all year round! Don’t wait until March to hype these books up. Include them in other displays, reading lists, and book clubs–because these stories are important every day of the year.

This list is just a small selection; there are so many others that fit the theme! There are so many incredible books out there about Women’s History & feminism for teens (but we still need more, of course!).

If you use my display ideas, I’d love to see pictures! Please tag me on Instagram or Twitter so I can see them.

Happy reading! Ari

  1. Your display sounds so cool! I’ve been gathering ideas for a display in my library but I still have a long way off until it can go up since I picked Banned Books Week 😅 I think it’s super important that the display features a diverse selection of authors, especially since I live in an area that is 90% white.
