Pocket Constitutions from Marilyn Brown

Polk County Librarian Mary Renick (left) accepts a display box of Pocket Constitutions from Marilyn Brown, who is spearheading a project to make these pocket-sized booklets available free of charge to anyone interested. Sponsored by the Democratic Party of Polk County, the project is funded by personal contributions from members, who believe that the Constitution of the United States is a document everyone should read and study. The booklet cover shows George Washington offering the reader a quill pen with which to sign the pledge on the back cover affirming that “I… have or will read our U.S. Constitution and pledge to maintain and promote its standard of liberty for myself and for my posterity….” One hundred copies have been given out since December and three hundred additional copies have just been purchased. They are available on the literature table just inside the Library’s main entrance.
