This is an exhibit for the 100th anniversary of the start of the American Library Association Library War Service, which provided books and library services to soldiers during World War I. The exhibit will highlight documents and artifacts from the American Library Association Archives that tell the story of the volunteer efforts organized by the ALA beginning with the entry of the United States into the war and ending over year after the armistice. These efforts include book collecting campaigns, providing camp libraries, hospital services, and job training.
