Library

Did you know the Club’s library contains over 20,000 books, 1,000 DVDs, 800 audio-books and 37 different magazines? The library is divided into two sections—adult and children.

To a great extent, this treasure is the result of efforts by volunteer members throughout the decades. Probably the greatest of those volunteers was Kay Wood. In the 60s and 70s, she devoted many hours to expanding and upgrading the library—as well as volunteering for AWA, American Association and SAS activities and raising four children. Kay’s infectious sense of humor and genuine commitment to the community were her most endearing traits. Her generous spirit gave out when she died from cancer in 1978. The Club named the library in her memory, and her portrait hangs in the hallway near the children’s library entrance.
