Kingsport Junior Book Club Collection, 1946-1991

KC Manuscript Collection 85

The Kingsport Junior Book Club Collection consists primarily of minutes and six photographs taken in May 1991.  The group began meeting in September 1946.  Typically, the club’s members read twenty-four books during the year.  Most meetings were intended for book discussions, but from time to time, guest speakers were invited.  Minutes from 1946 through the mid-1960s are much more complete and thorough than those taken between the late 1960s and 1990.  The club still existed as of 2004.
