Schrader: These women play cards for a cause
Note to readers: Barry Schrader’s “DeKalb County Life” column will appear on the first Tuesday of each month.
In 1898, Annie Glidden and a few other DeKalb women formed the Library Whist Club to raise money to buy books for the fledgling library, which had opened in 1893 in a room above the City Council chambers.
The club continues to meet today, but the original membership of 21 has been reduced to 12. There is a waiting list for those who would like to join, probably more difficult than getting into a P.E.O. chapter.
