Office or Library Decor Inspiration Files: PWA Posters

I’m sure you’ve heard of the famous Public Works Administration part of the New Deal package from back in the 1930s when the U.S. government invested in a swathe of long-term infrastructure and public works projects–including public information and education projects.

WELL…some of those projects related to libraries! Poster artist and lithographer Arlington Gregg did a series of graphic posters to educate/remind patrons how to care for the books they are entrusted with–and they are available for anyone to use now.

If you’ve been wondering what to plaster on your office or library wall, wonder no more! These downloadable images from the archives of the Library of Congress can be printed and used free of charge.
