Shades of Beauty Program Series Draws Inspiration from Talents of Local Women

Richland Library is drawing inspiration from the culmination of Black History Month and the commencement of Women's History Month. Please join us for an upcoming program series, titled Shades of Beauty, which is free and open to the public.

During the month of March, we're showcasing the incredible talents and expertise of women in our community in the fields of medicine, business and the arts with three virtual discussions.
