World War I and America
The Library District is one of several sites across the nation selected to host this exhibit marking the 100th anniversary of America’s entry into World War I. The exhibit is presented by The Library of America in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with support from The National Endowment for the Humanities. The sections of the exhibit tell the story of the war, including “The Road to War,” “The Experience of War,” “The Home Front,” and “Coming Home.” The exhibit is part of a broader program that aims to bring members of the veteran community in particular, together with the general public, in libraries and museums around the country to explore the transformative impact of warfare.
World War I and America will be on display in the Rotunda at the Adriance Memorial Library from May 1 – May 23, 2017.
For some events, exhibit will travel to Boardman Road Branch Library.
