Russia: Culture & History

Our most recent display, created by brilliant volunteer Sheila Bradley, is inspired by Russia and consists of books from the library collection -all of which are available to loan. Here are just some of the titles on display, reviews about them, and a couple of photographs taken in the library.

You can find the display in the glass cabinet in the main reception room. We create a new display with a different topic every month or so -it’s always worth a look in case something that was hidden when it was on the shelves catches your eye.

 

Click on title for full reviews – Odessa, Letters to Véra, Russia: A Journey to the Heart of a Land and its People, The Penguin Book of Russian Poetry
