World War One Poster Exhibit: Over the Top: Liberty and Victory Bond Posters from World War I

Through to December 1. Russell Library, 123 Broad Street, Middletown. Russell Library commemorates the 100th anniversary of America’s participation in World War One with an exhibition of posters from the library’s collection. The exhibit brings together a variety of posters that focus on the four Liberty Loan campaigns, the War Savings Stamp program, and the Victory Loan campaigns. These persuasive posters, with bold graphics and concise commands, encouraged citizens to support the troops and buy bonds to finance America's participation in the war, and reveal the American experience in the early 20th century.
