The theme for our November book display is The history of the “Cold War” and beyond. The Cold War formally ended in mid-November 1990 with the signing of a treaty in Paris France by the leaders of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE).

Come visit the history and possibly find something of interest for a research paper and judge for yourself.
The month of August is remembered, in part, as the month the first Atomic Bomb was ever used in World War II.
