Burton Barr Central Library (1221 N. Central Ave.) will host "A Dose of Cod Liver Oil: The New Deal in Arizona" from Sept. 1 - 27.

On loan from the History and Archives Division of the Arizona State Department of Libraries, Archives and Public Records, the exhibit explores how Arizonans survived and thrived during the Great Depression and how they were impacted by the New Deal.

The five panels employ photographs, documents and maps to illustrate the New Deal's influence on working, living and playing in Arizona.

Visitors are encouraged to share personal experiences of survival during the Great Depression or more recent experiences of survival during the recession by posting copies of family photos, documents or other keepsakes on a "community panel."
