The Noonday Club, the women’s writing organization whose 40 members meet monthly to hear members’ written papers and enjoy lunch or tea was organized in 1900 for “literary purposes, mental improvement, and enjoyment among its members” the Noonday Club, unlike the men’s Literary Club, has no clubhouse. Members take turns hosting meetings often in their homes. Papers read at Noonday meetings beginning in 1900 are archived at the Cincinnati History Library and Archives at the Cincinnati Museum Center.
