Plans for a Home Made Book Case
Working with the Virginia Department of Public Instruction, the Cooperative Education Association in 1905 printed a School and Civic League Bulletin, with step-by-step instructions on how to form a league, recruit members, and start the work of reform. The association set out to improve school buildings and playgrounds, supplying blackboards, books, bookcases, and sanitary drinking fountains to guard against contagious diseases like typhoid. Pictured here is the cover from a printed leaflet produced by the two organizations containing plans for building a bookcase at home.
