The VBC and the NYPL

From the NYPL Digital Library.

This summer the New York Public Library website posted an article about their participation in the Victory Book Campaign of 1942 and 1943. Read "The Victory Book Campaign and The New York Public Library"

  1. great piece. I LOVE this image:

    There was something very special about these types of efforts. I don't think you could replicate it in a modern context. There are still SO many books produced and probably thrown out these days. I wonder if smaller programs exist that still send stuff perhaps to military families.
