During the month of October, the Ronald H. Roberts Temecula Public Library (30600 Pauba Rd.) will be the home of the Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote pop-up exhibit from the National Archives. The exhibit marks the Centennial celebration of the ratification of the 19th Amendment in August of 1920. The 19th Amendment allowed fuller citizenship for many women across the country, and paved the way for universal women’s suffrage in 1965.
The pop-up display was originally scheduled to coincide with the 100th anniversary in 2020, but was postponed due to library closures related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Too important to be forgotten, the pop-up exhibit was rescheduled for October 2021.
The Temecula Valley American Association of University Women graciously offered to join in the celebration by creating a complimentary display of their own that highlights notable figures and events of the suffrage movement. Come view both displays during regular library hours. For additional information, please call (951) 693-8900.
