Remember WW1




2017 marks the centennial of the United States of America entering WWI. To commemorate this momentous occasion, the MCCS Library Program has teamed up with Sister Service MWR Libraries to create the Remember WWI project. The project will run from March 2017 through Dec 2018. During that time, multiple topics will be explored both in person and online.
The Great War was to be the war to end all wars and it shaped a legacy in medicine, technology, geopolitically and socially.
The United States declared war on April 6, 1917, allying with England in their fight with the Austro-Hungarian empire.
Many current technologies and traditions got their start during the war. Everything from blood drives to air warfare to prosthesis. The Army, Navy and USMC MWR Library programs can track their own roots back to this conflict. The American Library Association oversaw the creation of libraries at the front, staffing and stocking them. The service members' need for professional and recreational reading was fulfilled by librarians delivering books to the military before they left the home front and while in combat. These efforts spurred the eventual creation of the MWR libraries.
