Everett Public Library: 125th Anniversary
Amid mud and exploding stumps…a library! Everett Woman’s Book Club brought culture to a brutal new industrial city in 1894. The podcast tells the story of the hard work of how the Everett Woman’s Book Club parlayed political muscle and donated books to build an enduring civic institution during hard economic times. The podcast is part of the Everett Public Library’s effort to commemorate its 125th anniversary in 2019.
