LAKE WYLIE As a part of the Mamie Eisenhower Library Project, Kay Bivens of the Clover/Lake Wylie Republican Club presented three books to Oakridge Middle School head librarian Cathy Cordiere on Oct. 11.
MELP is the National Federation of Republican Women’s oldest program, and it is celebrating more than 45 years of book donations from an approved list to schools and libraries. According to the NFRW Literacy Committee, its mission is best reflected in Frederick Douglass’ quote: “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”
The historical books, all authored by David Barton, presented to the school’s library were “Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black & White,” “Wives of the Signers” and “Benjamin Rush.”
