The New York State Reading Association’s ode to libraries will have you singing, “Here’s a book now, so read it maybe.”

Librarians on Horseback in the Thirties

19 Feb

“President Franklin Roosevelt was trying to figure out a way to resolve the Great Depression of the 1930s. His Works Progress Administration created the Pack Horse Library Initiative to help Americans become more literate so that they’d have a better chance of finding employment…The horseback librarians were mostly made up of women…” Unfortunately, the horseback delivery program ended with the beginning of World War II and was never resumed.
