  The Presidents Book Club is designed to acquaint us with our United States presidents and the background history during their terms. We have been reading about each president in order of their service. Participants can access any material on the president they choose: book, qualified website, podcast, documentary. The purpose is to further our knowledge of our history through the lives of the presidents.

  Often referred to by his initials FDR, Roosevelt was an American politician who served as the 32nd president of the  United States from 1933 until his death in 1945. 
  He was elected President in November 1932, to the first of four terms. By March there were 13,000,000 unemployed, and almost every bank was closed. In his first “hundred days,” he proposed, and Congress enacted, a sweeping program to bring recovery to business and agriculture, relief to the unemployed and to those in danger of losing farms and homes.
