WPA Posters - South Portland Public Library

On the wall, alongside the circulation desk at the Main Library (and, occasionally, in the children’s room), you may have noticed some framed prints of posters promoting reading. These are reprints of posters created between 1935 and 1943 by the WPA (Originally the Works Progress Administration and later renamed to the Works Projects Administration).

She looks so young and vulnerable and happy, a girl I’d like to be book-lovin’ friends with.
