CareerGirls provides information about jobs, especially STEM, that focuses on women in the field. So there’s tons of videos featuring women already working these really cool jobs like astrophysicists, who act as role models for any aspiring astrophysicists or whatever. The website includes career information, lessons, and resources. This is a free resource and you can find a link through the DPL website.

Danville Public Library, located in Danville, Illinois, seeks an Assistant Director to oversee the public services, community engagement, and marketing of the library. Job Posting is available here and the job description is here.
This concludes the “Nation Under Our Feet” arc in Ta-Nehisi Coates’ excellent Black Panther comic. After having suffered defeats from Incursions, Doom, and Namor, Wakanda is very fragile and two different factions are rebelling against King T’Challa. Now, his sister Shuri has returned and is taking her place as Queen once again, working with T’Challa to bring peace to their kingdom. The back matter in this volume includes excerpts from comics that show the various attacks Wakanda had suffered before the start of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ run on Black Panther.
I’m a big fan of this version of Black Panther. The Dora Milaje here are warriors who want the best for the country but feel that T’Challa has mishandled things quite a bit. And they’re right. The history and culture of Wakanda are on full display in this series. With the revival of Shuri, we have an amazing woman and queen and her influence on T’Challa plays a fundamental role in this story. I am very excited to see where this story goes.
