Throwback Thursday:
Women's History Month sheds light on women across the country who have made contributions to their communities and to society.
This week we are honoring Meta Bittner.

Born in 1900, Meta Bittner grew up in Cairo, IL. Her grandparents and parents remained in Cairo, but Meta migrated north to Mount Prospect in 1930. Meta became very involved with the Mount Prospect Women’s Club, serving as its president for thirty-three years. She was also very involved with the Mount Prospect Public Library, which was founded by the Women’s Club. Meta recognized the importance of books in the community for education as well as for leisure. She was a member of the original board when the Library became a tax supported organization and she served on the Library board from 1943 to 1965. Meta also was one of the founders of the Mount Prospect Historical Society and served as its first president and historian.
