The Brentwood Library announces a visit with some of the original Rosie the Riveters for Women’s History Month, on Tuesday, March 12 at 6:30 p.m. in the Library Community Room.
Join the library as they explore and honor the efforts and sacrifices of American civilians on the World War II home front with a presentation by the Rosie the Riveter Museum. Find out how they lived, worked and got along. Many faces, many stories, many truths weave a complex tapestry of myths and realities from this time of opportunity and loss.
The Rosie the Riveter Museum is located in Richmond, and was chosen as the site for this National Historical Park because it has so many surviving sites and structures from the World War II years that can help tell the diverse stories of the home front. These stories include the mobilization of America’s industry and the changes in production techniques; the struggle for women’s and minority rights, and the labor movement; the growth of pre-paid medical care; advances in early childhood education and day care; recycling and rationing; major shifts in population; and changes in arts and culture.
The Brentwood Library is located at 104 Oak St. The Library is open Monday through Thursday from 10:00-8:00, and Friday and Saturday from 10:00-6:00.
