Madison Public Library and Public Health of Madison and Dane County are partnering to offer an informational health event at Meadowridge Public Library. Kids, teens and families are invited to come learn more about menstruation at a Period Party taking place on Saturday, September 2 from 2-4PM.
Public Health will have staff on hand to help break down some of the myths about menstruation in a short presentation, and Madison Public Library will provide “period craving” foods like pizza and chocolate. Attendees will also be able to assemble their own “go bag” with tampons, pads, liners and more.
The party will include an accompanying book display at Meadowridge Library and an anonymous box for questions. Local doula and artist Ashley Hartman Annis will also provide free copies of her "Awesome Ovaries" zine for attendees to take home. We're excited to partner with Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District, as well. They will provide information on how to safely dispose of period products so that they don't impact our sewer and wastewater systems. You can check out their educational photo booth while you're there!
Registration is requested for this event; all ages are invited to attend.
