Thu, 13 Apr 2017 04:00:00 GMT http://www.jfpl.org/polNews.cfm?doc_id=44037 Exhibit - Called to Serve: Morristown & Morris Township in WWI http://www.jfpl.org/polNews.cfm?doc_id=44034 In honor of the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I, The North Jersey History & Genealogy Center presents an exhibit from our library's collections. <strong>The exhibit will be on display from April 5 - August 14, 2017 in the F.M. Kirby Gallery on the second floor of the library.</strong><p>On April 6, 1917, the United States formally entered WWI by declaring war on Germany. &nbsp;German U-Boat attacks against unarmed vessels carrying American citizens and evidence of a German plot to ally with Mexico against the United States rendered American neutrality unsustainable, and so the United States joined in the conflict that had raged for two and a half years.</p> <p>By the summer of 1917, communities around the country were mobilizing human and financial resources in support of the Allied war effort.</p> <p>The photos and stories told here in newspaper headlines, obituaries, photos, ephemera and letters provide a small glimpse into one such community.&nbsp;</p> <p>A pilot&rsquo;s diary, correspondence of fire fighters to their friends back at the fire station, a letter of a mother who lost her son, and first hand battle descriptions by African American soldiers &nbsp;reveal the personal and human side of a community that was deeply affected by the war.</p> <p><strong>Don&#39;t miss the library&#39;s WWI programs:<br /> <a href="http://www.jfpl.org/polCalendarEvent.cfm?Event_Id=50480">New Jersey at Home and in the Trenches During World War I, Sunday, May 21, 2 PM</a></strong></p> <p><a href="http://www.jfpl.org/polCalendarEvent.cfm?Event_Date={d%20%272017-06-04%27}&amp;Calendar_Code="><strong>New Jersey&#39;s Major WWI Monuments, Sunday, June 4, 2 PM</strong></a></p> <p>Learn more about the Great War by visiting MacCulloch Hall&rsquo;s exhibit on the Women&rsquo;s Land Army and Acorn Hall&rsquo;s exhibit on Morris County and World War I.</p> Sat, 01 Apr 2017 04:00:00 GMT http://www.jfpl.org/polNews.cfm?doc_id=44034 Library Opening at 1 PM, Wednesday, March 15 http://www.jfpl.org/polNews.cfm?doc_id=44018 The library will open at 1 PM on Wednesday, March 15.
