CHELSEA, Mich. (AP) - A small city in Washtenaw County is commemorating the centennial of World War I with artifacts and public banners, including many displayed on Main Street.

The library in Chelsea kicked off the exhibit Saturday with a ribbon-cutting and tours.

Keegan Sulecki, head of adult services at the library, says there will be monthly events related to the exhibit, which runs into November. In August, there will be a talk about the “Hello Girls,” women who served as telephone operators during World War I.

Residents in the Chelsea area, west of Ann Arbor, are encouraged to share any artifacts from family members who served in the war, especially photos and letters.

Sulecki says the library organized similar events for World War II, the Vietnam War and the Korean War.
