The Monday Club
The library can be traced back as far as 1892, when eleven women in the Johnson City community met and formed "The Ladies Reading Circle." They met in each other's homes to read and discuss different books. The group reorganized on October 30, 1893 and changed its name to "The Monday Reading Club." Many of their husbands attended and joined in their discussions. In 1895 the group again changed its name to "The Monday Club." The same year, it established the Johnson City Public Library.
The Monday Club meets monthly (October to April) on the first and third Mondays at Noon at the library. For more information, contact president Mattie Mullins at firstname.lastname@example.org or 423-926-7827.
The Monday Club Auxiliary
The Monday Club Auxiliary is a department of the Monday Club. Its purpose is to promote civic improvement and intellectual and social culture. Its principal project is the support of the library.
The Monday Club Auxiliary meets monthly on the third Monday at 7 p.m. at the library. For more information, contact president Susan Burkey at 423-926-6879.
Johnson City Junior Monday Club
In 1938, a group of women from the Monday Club organized a new club... the Johnson City Junior Monday Club. Their group had been in existence since 1892, but they saw a need for a daughter club -- one that would appeal to younger aged women. Throughout the years, the club has maintained a strong bond with its founder. The primary purpose of the club is to support the library, both financially and through volunteer effort.
The Johnson City Junior Monday Club meets monthly (September to May) on the first Monday at 7 p.m. at the library. For more information, contact president Pat Williams at 423-926-5939.
