This club was originally established on Saturday, December 2, 2000 under the name Romantic Visions by serena3_2 (same person as a_soft_flower) and tahminaka_angel_of_mercy. It was created to discuss romance novels. On Monday, January 1, 2001, the group read and discussed its first book. Eventually, members decided to expand the group's reading to all types of "books" including nonfiction, fiction, poetry, graphic novels, and even comic books. No printed material is turned away or "banned" from Cafe Libri's monthly voting list. A name change contest was held on Thursday, February 23, 2006 to reflect the reading group's new mission statement (reading, reflecting, and analyzing all types of printed materials since 2006). SWY105 (Wil) suggested Cafe Libri, which became our group's new name. It is now owned by a_soft_flower (Serena/Adrianna) and co-owned by karana_20 (Shelli).
Cafe Libri (Yahoo Reading Discussion Group) is the original Cafe Libri creation. It is a Yahoo Group for all types of people. It is an informal online group that discusses a variety of subjects and is a great place to meet new friends. Discussion is always open-ended, and members are encouraged to take initiative in leading discussion topics.
