SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- As we mark the 100th anniversary of US entry into World War I, the Scotch Plains Public Library is pleased to present the World War I and America series, which will run from September 18 through November 9.  As one of only four New Jersey institutions to have received the World War I and America grant, and with a generous gift from the Fanwood-Scotch Plains Service League, the public library will offer original programming to commemorate the centennial of American involvement in World War One and to explore the ongoing experience of veterans who have served in our lifetimes.​

On Monday, Sept. 25 at 7:00 p.m., Dennis Dittrich, Associate Professor of Illustration at New Jersey City University, will speak about propaganda posters from WWI, while award winning illustrator Victor Juhasz will share his experience of being embedded with warriors in training and on today's front lines.​
