Yes, Self Culture Club lived on. . . as Columbia Woman's Club
Important movement a major force for betterment of Adair County for almost 100 years

Please note the number of women who formed this club. In 1923, soon after women were allowed to vote, the Self Culture Club became the Columbia Woman's Club, part of the General Federation of Women's Clubs, Inc.
The Kentucky Federated Women's Club was organized in 1919 as the fifth state to join GFWC. So Columbia joined KFWC only four years later. I find this somewhat amazing since communication was limited as to what was happening state wide.
Providing libraries was a major project of these women's club.
As women's roles changed and women were allowed more participation in businesses and other agencies, need for clubs such as this became less.
Our Columbia Woman's Club ceased in 2014 - 91 years after beginning as a group promoting community betterment. --Vonnie Kolbenschlag
