"On the Homefront" is one of many activities in the Learning Page. This Web site, though designed especially for teachers and their students, offers educational activities that anyone can enjoy and learn from.
The "Collection Connections" section of the site is especially useful as an introduction to the 8 million items in the more than 100 American Memory collections. They will guide you to the best and most interesting material in each American Memory collection, making it easier to navigate through the collection to find what you are looking for.
The "Read More About It" page suggests books to complement each of the collections, arranged by age level. The lists were compiled by the Library's Center for the Book, which is a nationwide program to promote reading. Every state and the District of Columbia has its own Center for the Book. Check out the State Center Affiliates page for your state and its reading activities.
