The Central Library at Grand Army Plaza is hosting an exhibit based on the book Over Here! New York City During World War II by Lorraine B. Diehl. Many photographs from the Brooklyn Collection archives are on display for the very first time to the public. The images show the first day of work for female employees of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Brooklyn war bond fundraisers, and the Sheepshead Bay Maritime Training Station. Don't miss this chance to see treasures from the Brooklyn Collection on display, along with original posters, photos, and World War II memorabilia from the author's collection. This exhibition was organized by Brooklyn Public Library's Programs and Exhibitions Department.
