Library Receives World War I and America Grant to Create Programming for Veterans
Albert S. Cook Library is pleased to announce that we have received a grant to create World War I focused library programs for veterans. This grant is a two-year national initiative of Library of America presented in partnership with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with generous support from The National Endowment for the Humanities.
The library is partnering with Towson’s Veterans Center and the Baltimore County Public Library to create a series of programs that will take place in 2017. So far the following events have been planned:
- World War I and America Exhibition (December 2016)
- World War I, Physical Fitness, and the Shaping of a Modern University (February 15, 2017)
- World War I, Sex, and Gender (March 28, 2017)
- Art, Culture, and Race: The Legacy of World War I (April 20, 2017)
Additional programs for Fall 2017 are also being planned so stay tuned for more information. Please contact Librarian Joyce Garczynski at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
