MELP / Literacy


The NFRW and the MoFRW  recognize the value of encouraging good reading habits for people of all ages.  On the MoFRW's website you will find the attached documents regarding the Literacy Project useful in developing a literacy project for your club.

The first 2-page document is the "Barbara Bush Literacy Program" - September - NFRW Literacy Month.  The document contains information and a form regarding selecting a literacy project for your club and submitting information about your project to the NFRW for a random drawing no later than October 31.

The 2nd document is entitled "Barbara Bush Literacy Program Literacy Month" - project ideas.  This document contains MANY great suggestions for a club literacy project.

The 3rd document is the "Mamie Eisenhower Library Project" (MELP) and offers suggestions for club projects.

The final document is the "Mamie Eisenhower Library Project" - theme list

In 2019 several MoFRW clubs participated in the programs and submitted their projects for a drawing for $50 which was given to a club at the Show-Me Action Conference/Board of Directors Meeting on February 1, 2020.  The winning club among those submitting projects was the First Capitol Republican Women.  Other clubs submitting projects were:  Christian County FRW, Johnson County RWC; FRW of Lafayette County; and, Linn County RW.

A drawing for $50 will again be done at the 2021 Show-Me Action Conference/Board of Directors Meeting.

Thank you for all of your efforts in promoting reading for children and adults!
