"The brainchild of Louis B. Mayer, head of the powerful MGM film studio, the Academy was organized in May 1927 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and improvement of the film industry. Its first president and the host of the May 1929 ceremony was the actor Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. Unlike today, the winners of the first Oscars–as the coveted gold-plated statuettes later became known–were announced before the awards ceremony itself.
The Library Book Club usually meets on the third Monday of the month in the library meeting room. New members are always encouraged to attend. The group typically chooses a book to discuss at the following meeting. The titles vary widely from fiction to nonfiction. Choices are made based on titles that appeal to the group at the time. Registration is not necessary.
