The Osage County Republican Women purchase and donate books each year in conjunction with their support of the Mamie Eisenhower Library Project. The books are chosen from an approved reading list of the National Federation of Republican Women. Book donations by local Republican Women organizations are a traditional nationwide community event that has occurred for more than 50 years.

“Leaders are Readers” is the initiative of the literacy project. It is designed to inspire and encourage members to cultivate a reading environment in their communities and their homes.

The Osage County Republican Women meet every other month throughout the year at the Osage County Senior Center, Osage City, Kan. Osage County Clerk Rhonda Beets will be the featured speaker at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2021. She will speak on the topic of registered voter records and the election process.

All Republican men and women are welcome to attend the meetings and presentations. For more information, contact OCRW President Judy Marten at 785-219-3557.
