M. Vivian Hubbard Memorial bookmobile Grant

Log in

M. Vivian Hubbard was State President of the Federated Women's Clubs in the early 1950s. The rural bookmobile program originated in North Dakota with much influence from the Federated Women's Clubs. Hubbard believed in this program and requested that memorial funds at her death be donated to NDLA to further interest in bookmobiles. The grant may be used for formal college or university classroom work, independent study, workshops, conferences, or participation in any other activity that will further the work of the bookmobile, including the purchase of books or other materials.
