Tuesday Evening Club

The following documents were graciously donated for digitization by the Salida Museum. They document the correspondence between the Tuesday Evening Club (Salida Library Association) and the Carnegie Corporation from the years 1905 – 1909. The last includes a response to a patron who had requested the use of the Library’s assembly hall for use as a dance space.



On the 40th anniversary of the Tuesday Evening Club’s founding, Mary C. Ridgway, the first president of the club, mailed a letter to the current members:
