MELP Book of the Week
Riglee Rolls an Easter Egg
by Lori Piotrowski and Michelle Hirstius
Riglee Raccoon can't contain her excitement. She and brother Robbie have been invited to the White House Easter Egg Roll. Riglee learns the history of the Egg Roll that takes place every year.
This is a Riglee Raccoon Super Reader book for young readers. Proceeds support the National Federation of Republican Women and their literacy projects.
We invite you to read, discuss, and share.
The Mamie Eisenhower Library Project (MELP) is the NFRW’s oldest program, celebrating more than 50 years of book donations from an approved list to schools, libraries, hospitals and other public institutions.
Bookplates are mailed to clubs upon receipt of the list of books to be donated. This enables the Literacy Committee to track the numbers and names of books being donated by Republican women across the country.
To request bookplates, clubs should send a list of the books they are donating to Literacy Committee member Cathy Percefull. Include the club name, the title and author of each book, and the address to which the bookplates should be sent. Bookplates will be mailed in return.
The Literacy Committee will provide the state presidents with a list of participating clubs and the number of books they donate each year.
Additions to the MELP Recommended Book List are made periodically, and the committee encourages recommendations from members.
