Vintage Ads for Libraries to Promote Reading!

I love vintage themed posters and art work. So, when I came across a post on the Brain Pickings website titled Vintage Ads for Libraries and Reading by Maria Popova, I couldn't help but share this link with my fellow readers!

I like the vintage posters because they promote reading books and using the library! 

Click on the above link to see the vintage ads. 


  1. Ooh! I love them! They are so wonderfully retro and gorgeous! I have one here in my office from the 'Life Be In It' people of a witch reading a book as she hangs in mid-air... and the caption reads: 'Life is better with a book'... and indeed it is! :D

    1. Your poster sounds lovely!!

      I have 3 framed vintage posters hanging in my home -- granted they are reproductions! The irony is that none of them have anything to do with reading or books.
