The temporary Binbrook location will be closing after Saturday, Jan. 13 in order to move back to the renovated location. Holds for pickup at Binbrook, that have not yet been filled, have been suspended until the end of the month when the renovated branch will open. This includes any newly placed holds up until that time.
The Seventeenth Century and the Dawn of the Global World
This masterful work expands our appreciation and understanding of how our global village really began in the seventeenth century. Brook demonstrates that the lust for luxury goods-- porcelain, silver, and beaver pelts, drove expansion. Using several objects to illustrate the web of trade and the explosive changes that they wrought, Brook gives us a remarkable view of the expanding world in this thrilling history.
