The Pack Horse Librarians Of Kentucky

What an interesting story from the depression days.

When President Franklin D. Roosevelt created the Works Progress Administration, he
also saw that women get some work, not just the men.

The administration came up with the plan to deliver books to rural areas in Kentucky
to isolated and poor people.
Women were riding horses and carrying the books to the people.
It wasn't an easy job and you had to be a strong woman to keep up.

They were called "Horse Pack Librarians".

Unfortunately, it was dismantled after a few years.

A Little Joke For Today

A woman went to a Florida lemon grove to apply for a job,
but the foreman thought she seemed way too qualified for the position.

"Do you even have any actual experience picking lemons?" he asked.

"Well, I think I do." she replied. "I've been divorced three times."
