 "'Hey Fellows!' Your money brings the book we need when we want it. American Library Association, United War Work Campaign." 

This bright orange poster is an original piece from World War I, meant to advertise giving money to give books to soldiers fighting. Though we're used to seeing posters from this era promoting bonds to buy food and clothing for soldiers, we often forget the little necessities such as entertainment while at war. 

Artist: John E. Sheridan

Condition: Good
