The Lakewood Memorial Library was established in 1960 by a group of twenty-six women who gathered in Mrs. Grant Gruel’s living room at 8 Ivy Lane in Lakewood, New York on the evening of May 20, 1960. No one hesitated to sign her name to the document which affirmed the founding of the Lakewood Library Association. Prominent Lakewood lawyer, Joseph Gerace, completed all the legal paperwork necessary for state approval . In October 1960 the Association received the Provisional Charter that was the basis for the creation of the Lakewood Memorial Library.
Since that day the Library has grown and thrived!
