The staff at Mesa Public Library will present a special program in honor of Women’s History Month.

Making Local History Through Social Impact: Los Alamos Women in Nonprofit Leadership is free to the public and will be held 7-8 p.m. Thursday, March 24 on Zoom.

Local panelists include Melissa Arias of Lemonade Living, Prisca Tiasse of Los Alamos Makers, Rachel Kizielewicz of Los Alamos Community Foundation and Maura Taylor of Self Help, Inc.

This program is part of Mesa Public Library’s ongoing Library Conversations series that takes place on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. The goal of this series is to provide free and engaging programs centered around a variety of topics to adults in the Los Alamos and White Rock community.

“A lot of people think of Women’s History Month as a way of celebrating women from the past. Instead, we decided to focus this session on women who are making a big impact on the local community right now,” Program Specialist Jessica Jenkins said. “This is a great opportunity to highlight the work of some amazing women who are changing lives every day, and to hopefully inspire others to learn more about how they can do the same.”

Library resources on the topic of nonprofit startup, structure and governance will be shared. To obtain access to the program and a meeting link, registration is required through the event page at or call 505.662.8257 for assistance.

Library Conversations programming and other library services are made possible by Friends of Los Alamos County.
