Votes for New York Women (1917-2017), a Centennial Exhibit, in our History in the Hall Gallery. When women in New York State won the right to vote one hundred years ago—making 2017 the centennial of that historic civil rights victory—their success changed the national political landscape and was a critical tipping point on the road to a constitutional amendment three years later. This exhibit celebrates the centennial by narrating the stories of Long Island women activists who dedicated themselves to the powerful grassroots movement. Curated by our head research librarian, Wendy Polhemus-Annibell, this exhibit will be on display throughout the year. Gallery Hours: Weds. - Sat., 10:00 am - 4:30 pm.
