Looking for more recommendations?  A catalog search for women history or women biography will provide several titles to choose from.  Take advantage of the Limit Search Results options that appear on the left side of the list.  I typically limit my search to include Books and include Adult Reading Level, but you can also choose to focus on fiction or non-fiction, among other things.

And, of course, you're also always welcome to give us a call or send an email to  We love talking about books!  The Readers' Services department at the Main Library has the largest selection of history and biography titles -- their phone number is (260) 421-1235.  If you prefer to speak to someone at your favorite library branch though, that's okay!  It doesn't matter where a particular item is located -- as long as it is not Express or Reference, it can be sent to the most convenient location for you.

Who are you most interested in learning about this month?  Which books would you recommend for this post?

Becky CBecky likes to read … A LOT. When she’s not reading, she likes to pretend that she can garden. Her thumb has no hint of green whatsoever but luckily her plants are forgiving. Her favorite books are The Shannara series by Terry Brooks.
