Winifred Tisdale discusses her affiliation with the Yellowstone Club in Livingston, Montana, and the club’s focus on program committees, organization and charter, and the literary events. She briefly describes the role that the club had in the creation and continued funding of the Park County Library. Tisdale details how club members volunteered as librarians and collected books after the library’s creation in 1901. She also recalls the petition for a tax levy for the library and the efforts of the club to obtain the men’s vote since the petition was introduced before women had the right to vote in Montana. Tisdale concludes by discussing the club’s relationship with the Montana Federation of Women’s Clubs and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs.
