New York State Library
Janet Martin Welch was the first woman to serve as New York State’s Librarian. Appointed in 1996, Welch served until her retirement in 2008. A certified School Library Media Specialist, Welch held leadership positions in university, public, school and corporate libraries throughout her career. Prior to her appointment to the New York State Library, Welch served as Director of the Rochester Regional Library Council, a network of 500 libraries in the Rochester, New York area.
Under her leadership the State Library underwent a major renovation of the Research Library, enhanced the Talking Book and Braille Library and made important additions to the State Library’s collection.

March is Women’s History Month. Some date this declaration back to 1911 at the first International Woman’s Day, March 8. In 1978, a California school district celebrated Women’s History Week, and in 1980, President Carter issued the first presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8 as National Women’s History Week. The National Women’s History Project petitioned Congress to expand the event to the entire month, and in 1987, Congress declared the month in perpetuity. Every day this March, the “Today in History” column in “U.S.A. Today” will feature important dates related to women’s rights, achievements and equality. We have books and movies that feature various aspects of women’s history.
