Delphian Clubs and Societies
Share |

Delphian Clubs seemed to have been particularly strong in early day Oklahoma, in starting and running the first public libraries in several locations. In Broken Bow, the Club started the library in 1920 and ran it to 1947. In Choctaw, they developed a local library in 1920 and ran it until 1931. In Fairfax, the library was started in 1922 and run by the Club until 1929. The Delphian Club of Hominy started that library in 1922, and Mrs. J. W. Hogg volunteered as the first librarian until 1924. In Sayre, the Club joined with the As You Like it Club to open that town’s first library in 1921.
