Books & Library Goodness...On Microfilm! Pt.2

We love images of libraries, books, or anything to do with reading (if you don't believe us, check out our Pinterest boards!). We come to you, again, bearing images that we have found while conducting research on microfilm. The first two show students using the library as a study space, and the third shows Mississippi Girl Scouts operating a hospital book-mobile!

"At public library, teenagers do research for term papers. Clintona is [a] relative new-comer to [the] city. Family moved to Detroit only four years ago from West Virginia where her dad worked as chief surgeon for West Virginia State College."

"During study period, Richard reads in library. His college plans are clouded by [the] very real possibility that he will be offered [a] bonus to sign with a major league baseball club. Bonus might be so big that he will find it hard to turn it down."
"Candy Stripers -- These girls are not really bookworms, but are Girl Scouts serving as hospital aides in the Candy Striper Organization at the Baptist Hospital. Here, they are shown taking the book-mobile to patients' rooms. Betsy Martin, center, and Peggy Tomlin, right, are working to receive their Hospital Service Aide Bar from Girl Scouts, a United Givers Fund Agency. Cam Moore, left, has already earned her bar."
