June meeting - We will choose titles for next season:  one classic for September; one Canadian for October; eight fiction for the rest of the season.   
We try to find titles of books that we have in our library or are available through the Public Library system so that everyone can easily access them. 

The Lakeview Bookworms first began October 22, 2008, two months after the opening of the library on August 31, 2008. Irene LeFeuvre (1941-2013) was one of original founding members who made this library possible in the first place.  One of her wishes was to have a book club at the library.  She would be very happy to know that the Lakeview Bookworms Book Club is still very active. We discuss a novel by a Canadian author each year, in memory of Irene.  These are quotes that Irene wrote down in a notebook years ago.  Perhaps these quotations inspired Irene to start the Library.  Her actions continue to inspire us.

 We have records showing that there was a book club in the Village in 1914 - over 100 years ago. Here are some excerpts from "16 Journals by Alice May (Parks) Straight: written between 1907-1951" that tell us about the first book club in this area.

December 2, 1914 - The Cambridge Reading Club met at John Robinson's. Mabel and Jennie (Straight) went from here. There was a good number met. They had a lovely time. After the music and games, cake and coffee was served.

January 30, 1915 - Mabel, Fred and Jennie (Straight) was down to Mr. James Robinson's to the Book Club.

February 13, 1915 - Mabel and Fred (Straight) was up to Mary White's to the Reading Club.

February 27, 1915- The Cambridge Reading Club met at W. H. White's. Mabel and Jennie (Straight) went down there. They had a nice time.


There are two copies of Alice Straight's Journals in the "Queen's County Corner" at the back of the library. One is for Reference only but the other one is available to library members to take out.

The tradition of having book clubs and reading clubs in the Village continues.........
