North Jefferson County Library District Presentation to our Club

Our speakers this week were Carly Delsigne, Director and Jane Hamman, Chair of the Board from the North Jefferson County Library District. They told us about the history of the library district, from its genesis as a volunteer operated, small lending library to a full fledged library district. The first library in the District opened in the “Little Red Schoolhouse” in Clancy. Much of the work to convert the space into a useable library was accomplished through collaboration with businesses in the area. It is now under renovation with a new floor. The District recently opened a library at Montana City. Our Club donated books and funds to the District last Fall under District Governor Bill and Mary Lou Spath’s Literacy Project. Club members donated five more books this week.
