Ever been curious about how schools used to encourage reading and library use among their students? We have some vintage posters from the 1960s for you to look at!
With the news of an all-digital library opening in Bexar County, Texas later this year, analogue readers like us are probably asking the same question Huffington Post has raised: Are bookless libraries a good thing? Or, to put it in another way, will bookless libraries “feel” the same way as the traditional yet beautiful libraries we’ve all come to know and love?
It also makes me wonder just how people will be encouraged to develop good reading habits and “flip through the pages.” Some school libraries of many years ago came up with nice posters to encourage students to “open the world” by cracking a book open. I can already envision bookless libraries being promoted somewhere along the lines of “the world in your fingertips” — but will it work just as well?
Did your school also encourage reading and library use at some point? Share your stories and insights about these vintage school library posters and leave a comment below!
