An amazing and enthralling account of how a group of young women, in the heart of the Great Depression, managed to plan, finance, and open a public library for their hometown. This book documents their struggles to improve and enlarge their original tiny library into the impressive entity it has grown into at the present time. Along the way they would age and change their club name while always maintaining allegiance to their firstborn---the Scottsboro Public Library. Their crowning achievement was creating the first public library in the state of Alabama outside a metropolitan center. Their sacrifices resulted in a magnificent gift to their hometown. This is their story.
