If the events in Ukraine are to appear as more than a series of disconnected events, you really must take the long view. So if you want to understand why it looked last night as though war was about to break out in the Crimea, perhaps take a look at this piece of analysis by Stratfor. It's a company that focuses on geography and history to explain what is happening in the world. Stratfor makes its money by signing up paying subscribers, but makes some of its work freely available. The book from which this is taken, The next hundred years, is also worth reading.
Haiti Earthquake Appeal
Book Sale Monday 25th & Tuesday 26th January Drill Hall Library 10am - 4pm
The Drill Hall Library staff are planning to hold a Book Sale to raise money for victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
We are not talking ex-library stock but donated fiction, academic text books, gardening books, cookery books, children's books... Any book in good condition gratefully received (DVDs & CDs also welcome).
If you have any of the above you would like to donate to our sale you can bring them to the Drill Hall Library at any time. [or for large donations we can use the Library van to come and collect them from your office or car - I am afraid we can't collect from your home address.]
So this weekend you might want to start clearing out those bookcases at home... and then please come along and buy some more books to fill them!
Please contact Julia on 01634 88 3591 or 43591 if you have any questions
