Local History Exhibit

WWI Patriotism & Propaganda Poster Display

Where: Sidney Public Library | Smart Community Room
When: Month of March
Presented By: Delaware County Historical Association

The Delaware County Historical Association currently has a fantastic display of WWI propaganda posters on display in the Smart Community Room of the Sidney Public Library. The exhibit features many propaganda posters used by the United States to drum up patriotism and support for the WWI, along with information with some great information about each of the posters, the artist, and the cause that it was supporting.

This is a great display, and definitely worth taking 10 – 15 minutes to stop in and look through. The exhibit will run for the month of March.
