Did You Know...

Having founded over 474 free public libraries and 4,655 traveling libraries, women’s clubs were credited by the American Library Association with establishing 75% of America’s public libraries. Supporting local libraries continues to be a Federation priority today.

The Education Program works to improve literacy and education awareness in communities at home and around the world. Clubwomen are dedicated to promoting a commitment to literacy and lifelong learning by:

  • Encouraging members and others to foster and support educational opportunities for all ages in their communities
  • Promoting and supporting Epsilon Sigma Omicron, an honorary educational society open to all per capita paying GFWC members that provides clubwomen with a structured reading program for self-enrichment and personal growth
  • Educating members and others on ways to improve low adult and youth literacy rates
  • Supporting libraries in their efforts to provide information/materials and educational opportunities
  • Hugh O'Brian Youth leadership (HOBY)




Educate yourself.  Inform others.  Create change.
