ALA Films (Digital Surrogates) | The American Library Association Archives
Digital surrogates from the ALA Films contain the digitized films "Help Yourself" (1950, 23:15 min) about Cambria free library at Johnstown (PA), "And Something More" (1966, 7:55 min.), and "ALA: Program for Progress" (1960, 27:55 min.). Films display the benefits of public and school libraries' services, give practical recommendations for users and librarians, promote citizen financial support for libraries, encourage library use, and present the Headquarters Building Fund Campaign, inviting libraries to support the construction project of ALA's new office building.
