Library is done!

So after a month and a half of work, the library down here at NJAHS is finally finished, books are now catagorized and alphabetized for all your reference needs. The number of available Japanese-American history books is staggering. NJAHS is a perfect place for you to come down and study say if you have a Japanese Art History final coming up this week and you could use a little refresher on your course material, plenty of books here that were mentioned and referenced in my class at SFSU that I never thought I'd be able to find.

Over all, volunteering at NJAHS has been a fairly nice experience, it has given me some time to recognize the deep involvement of Japanese-Americans, specifically on the west coast. The amount of books based upon the 442nd and 100th were particularly interesting considering that they were some of the most decorated units in the entirety of WWII.

Please don't hesitate to stop by and check out all the hard work that has gone into the organization of our Japan and Japanese-American library!
