DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Broward County Library Customers: March is Women’s History Month, an annual opportunity to reflect on the evolving role of women in our country’s history. A look at the past shows us that progress and resilience can happen in even the most challenging of times. More than 100 years ago, the Spanish Flu dramatically changed our world. The disastrous pandemic killed more than 50 million people. More men were affected than women due to soldiers being in close proximity during World War I. The deadly combination of the flu and war caused a worker shortage that gave unprecedented employment opportunities for women. Many of the jobs that women were acquiring were held exclusively by men before the pandemic. This dramatic increase in the presence of women in the workforce economy most certainly helped pass the Nineteenth Amendment in 1919 which granted women the right to vote. We are now living through historic, unprecedented times. Looking back just a year ago, as news of COVID-19 spread, we had no idea how much different our world would become. Who knows what permanent changes we may see in society once the current pandemic is behind us? Hopefully, some of those changes will be positive ones. If you haven’t done so, I invite you to tell us about your COVID-19 experiences and how it’s changed your life— for better or for worse. Our South Florida COVID-19 Project is an online capsule for residents to share their writings, photos, art, and more about COVID-19. Let’s document and archive our experiences for the education of future generations.

SCANNING IN THE SUN-TATTLER

Broward County Library preserves South Florida history As the Broward County Libraries Division deals with the long-standing challenge of how to both preserve and provide improved access to historic newspapers, it has taken an ambitious approach. A dedicated team of highly trained technicians are in the process of digitizing the local Sun-Tattler newspaper to make it both searchable and browsable. The SunTattler newspaper was established in 1935 as the Hollywood Sun. It was combined with the South Broward Tattler in 1942, when it adopted the Hollywood Sun-Tattler name it would use for most of its history. The Sun Tattler was sold SUN-TATTLER COMIC STRIP to the Dallas Times Herald in 1989 before it folded in 1991. To date, we have created a digital reproduction and processed more than a hundred thousand pages. The goal of the digitization team is to concentrate on making the entire run of the SunTattler (1935-1989) available and to bring historical research to life for both librarians and researchers.
