Program Description

Event Details

Thursday, June 13 at 7:00PM. (Zoom Virtual Event)

When bicycles and motorcycles started to become popular in the late 1800s, adventurous women hopped on and changed everything from the way women were viewed by society to fashion (those long skirts were hardly suitable riding attire). These “freedom machines” allowed women to venture out without a male chaperone to exercise in fresh air, and even became a symbol in the struggle for women’s suffrage.

An East End Libraries Event hosted by North Shore Public Library.

Westhampton Free Library strives to create respectful and family-friendly virtual experiences using Zoom. Please do not share any Zoom links. You must be registered to be admitted to the Zoom programs. In order to facilitate presentations, the library staff member co-host or the presenter may or may not, at their discretion, enable visual and chat participation. We ask that all participants in library programs via Zoom be mindful and polite. Guests who are disruptive or otherwise do not conduct themselves in a respectful manner may be removed from a Zoom meeting. We thank you in advance for your courtesy.
