If you search their catalog for Serbian items, you can read some of the old books right on line! What a treat it was to read right from my computer here at home about WWI and the English Serbian Relief Committee, and see the illustrations and photos of the people from that war.
"Here is a feature coverage story regarding the late Mitchell Paige who died Nov. 15, 2003. Mitch+, an American Serb, was a Medal of Honor recipient from WWII with unbelievable exploits."
"The article was published in our Community Paper on June 26, 2008, just in time for Vidovdan. Mitch's mother always had the 'Maid of Kosovo' on her wall as I do in my office." Mike Papich
