Margaret Trysla and her husband Henry are synonymous with South Sioux City history. Their contributions to the community are numerous, which is why Margaret's reading and study group, Fortnightly Study Club, recently made a donation to the South Sioux City Public Library in her memory.

The group donated three copies of Shoeless Joe by W. P. Kinsella to the library, a reflection of Margaret's love of reading, her career in teaching, and Henry's love of baseball.

Two of Margaret and Henry's daughters travelled to South Sioux City for the donation ceremony and were humbled by the act.

“They were so central to this community,” said Trudi Trysla, a daughter. “This was a place they cherished.”

Fortnightly Study Club began in 1890 by a group of women who wanted fellowship and education. Every two weeks, or every fortnight, from September to May, the group meets to discuss readings and study topics. The club currently has 16 members.

“This is all really special to us,” added Maria Trysla, another daughter. “(Margaret) was a lifelong educator and really valued reading. I know she'd love this.”
