Women's Club Scrapbooks and other Club materials
The Women's Club is held in affectionate esteem at the Frankfort Public Library, as they paid rent at the Library's first location on 9 W. Nebraska Street in downtown Frankfort from 1961-1966 before the Library became a tax-supported village library. The Club became established in 1917 and is still active today promoting interest in civic and cultural affairs, as well as the general welfare of the community.
