Council Bluffs Public Library

In the early 1950s, the Amana Refrigeration Company experienced a burgeoning demand for freezers, refrigerators, and air conditioners. Finding good solid workers proved challenging, however, as the isolated location in rural Iowa made a working-class population scarce. Amana decided in order to recruit enough employees, they would open the factory doors to women as well as men.

Virtual Program – Register to view with us in Room D or pre-register to view from home. A different program every Wednesday in March in celebration of Women’s History Month! Face masks and social distancing are required for in-person events and programs. This series is brought to you in part by the State Historical Society of Iowa.
