A little bit of GRPL History

Earlier this week we received a wonderful piece of Grand Rapids Public Library History.

A man in Colorado came upon a bookmark from 1943 created by the Library and  Greater Grand Rapids Safety Council.

On each side there are facts about safety. One side on pedestrian safety and the other side on fatalities during accidents in the home.

The Grand Rapids Public Library advised people to help keep the book safe with the bookmark.

This bookmark will now be safe within the Local History Department of the Library.
