"The Day the Books Went Blank"

What happens if a library is not used, the collection not maintained, and the books not read?  Would the pages go blank?  That’s the outcome dramatized in “The Day the Books Went Blank”, a 1961 educational film intended to show the importance of maintaining quality libraries, from The Library Extension Agencies of the six New England States.

Remember your local library for Library Week (and every week)!
