Here Ye Here Ye SCA and Summer Reading Program team up

The Society for Creative Anachronism ( is an international, non-profit, educational society celebrating pre-17th century history. It has members who study every aspect of medieval life. We are brewers, archers, calligraphers, heralds, fencers, spinners, blacksmiths, costumers, dancers, cooks and armoured fighters. We enjoy feasting, spinning, needlepoint, equestrian, leatherwork, beadwork, socializing, live weapons competition, period music, theatre and much more. If someone did it back then, you can bet someone is trying to do it now.

The goal is to learn through doing. Doing and sharing ones subject knowledge with others. The SCA encourages historical research and recreation, and most importantly: preserving a code of conduct, mentality and philosophy that, in many ways, is lacking in the modern world.

The local chapter of "The Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc." will be assisting us with the Summer Reading Program on Saturday, June 25th, from 11:00a.m.-2:00 p.m. They will have "stations" featuring different creative arts inside the library and if it is not too hot, a fighter's demonstration outside the library! See you there.

Pentagon Papers

The Pentagon Papers, officially titled "Report of the Office of the Secretary of Defense Vietnam Task Force", was commissioned by Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara in 1967. In June of 1971, small portions of the report were leaked to the press and widely distributed. However, the publications of the report that resulted from these leaks were incomplete and suffered from many quality issues.
On the 40th anniversary of the leak to the press, the National Archives, along with the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon Presidential Libraries, has released the complete report. The 48 boxes in this series contain a complete copy of the 7,000 page report along with numerous copies of different volumes of the report, all declassified. Approximately 34% of the report is available for the first time.
Check out the full papers here.

New U.S. Army War College Library Bibliography

The U.S. Army War College Library is pleased to announce the publication of Civil-Military Relations: A Selected Bibliography, compiled by Greta H. Andrusyszyn, Research Librarian.

This bibliography supports the Civil-Military Relations special theme of the U.S. Army War College's curriculum. It focuses on the principle of civilian control over the military in the United States, but also includes a wide range of references for topics directly related, such as the military profession, strategy, policy, homeland defense, civil support, and the use of force. We have also provided a section about the civil-military relations of other countries. Not a comprehensive listing, this selected bibliography is intended to be a starting point for research.
