Throwback Thursday: Peru State Normal School

The month of April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate, we are featuring this poem for this week’s #ThrowbackThursday!

This 5-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ postcard features a poem about the town of Peru. Postcards like this were likely supplied to students and visitors to promote the school.

This image is published and owned by the Nebraska Library Commission. The collection includes material on the history of libraries in Nebraska, mainly libraries built with Carnegie grants. Also included in the collection are items from the 1930s related to the Nebraska Public Library Commission bookmobile, as well as items showcasing the history of Nebraska’s state institutions.
