As the years rolled by when the world was at war in the 1940s, women were needed to perform jobs traditionally held by men. The Ellinwood Community/School Library has a display of magazines recruiting women to perform those jobs.

ELLINWOOD — In 1939, when Nazi Germany invaded Poland and started a world wide war with unmatched death, violence and fire power, and the lives of 60 million people were extinguished, Ellinwood is remembering its own at the Ellinwood/Community School Library with an exhibit of those who served, and of those who never returned.

The public is invited to a special book signing and reception for Linda McCaffery and Bill Brenner today, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Ellinwood Community Library. Based on the World War II experiences and letters exchanged by Bill Brenner and his wife Jo, local author Linda McCaffery and Bill collaborated to produce the book "I’m Praying for You", Love Letters to a Death Camp - The World War II Ordeal of Bill and Jo Brenner. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.

The Great Bend Army Air Field Museum will display World War II vehicles in front of the library for public viewing.
