Over There Book Drive Poster


Between 1917 and 1918, America sent around 4 million men to France to fight in World War 1. Not knowing how long the boys would be “over there,” people on the Home Front organized book drives and sent books over to the soldiers serving. 
Deborah Martin, the head librarian at the Kellogg Public Library, enlisted Green Bay’s participation in the war by having a book drive.

Inspired by Deborah Martin who lived at Hazelwood, the Brown County Historical Society is hosting our own “Over There” Book Drive in honor of the 100th anniversary of America entering the World War 1. We will collect new or used books to send to our soldiers serving our country starting on June 1, 2017 until September 8, 2017 at Hazelwood Historic House & NWTC Main Library.
