ALA Goes To War and Posters WWI to WWII

Books Are Free At The Library

Gizmodo has a piece on the reading programs by the American Library Association and the collection of ALA posters at the University of Illinois.

The posters run from WWI to WWII and include ALA's 50th anniversary in 1926. They advertise that Books Are Free At The Library and the campaigns to send books to the troops. 7,000,000 books in WWI, which is impressive when you realize that the US got into the war late, so we're probably only taking 1917-18.
