Gain an extra 2 inches of cargo depth in a pinch (making it "fatter" than the carry-on limit, but perfect for checking).

The unique soft front panel design gives you three zippered pockets within easy reach — 6", 8½", and 18" deep — which other hard-shell luggage users are sure to envy! The generous main compartment includes adjustable compression straps, a clip-in document pouch with two mesh drawstring bags, a full-length zippered mesh lid compartment, and a foot-long zippered side pocket. The twin-shaft, two-stage handle and wheels placed at the very edges (13½-inch track) make the Ravenna Rolling Case rock-solid over uneven surfaces. Plum colored with dimensions of 21" x 14" x 9" (including wheels).
  • The Ravenna Day Pack is made from polyester fabric, so it's a super-tough day pack up for any challenge. It is surprisingly roomy, featuring three zippered compartments, a pair of breathable padded straps, and two side water bottle pockets. This bag also includes a padded laptop/tablet compartment on the inside. On the outside, its breathable padded back panel is designed to slide over the handle of any of our rolling bags, piggyback-style. The Ravenna Day Pack is a perfect companion to the Ravenna Rolling Case. Plum colored with dimensions of 15" x 11 ½" x 7" and weight of 1.15 lbs.
  • The Keep on Travelin'™ Cap is a comfy, adjustable, and limited edition ball cap featuring Rick Steves' famous TV sign-off line. Fully-adjustable and one size fits all, the gold-and-white Eiffel-and-text design is embroidered onto a quality blue-gray colored cotton cap.
  • Packed with lessons gleaned from more than 30 years of budget travel, Europe Through the Back Door 2017 answers the questions you have now — and those you wouldn't have asked until faced with them on your trip. Besides essential travel-skills tips, Rick also gives a country-by-country rundown of his favorite destinations throughout Europe, and shares some of his most unforgettable experiences. This trusted, best-selling “how-to” travel handbook, is in full color and freshly updated for 2017.
  • Written in a breezy, humorous style, Europe 101: History & Art for the Traveler will actually get you excited about art and history — not feeling like you just ate an encyclopedia. It doesn’t just tell you what happened way back when, but more importantly, why it matters and where to see the most vivid examples. This book is a 420-page, dozen-chapter, fully illustrated rundown of Europe's history with 40 pages on art and music appreciation, handy six-page timeline digest of the past 32 millennia, maps, timelines, and lists of must-see sights to help you plan.
  • Rick Steves' Europe: Complete Collection Box Set + 10 New Shows 2017–2018 DVD Set is a whopping 63 hours of travel thrills including every one of Rick's TV shows and specials plus the newest 2017–2018 TV season.

Donated by: Melvin Gollub of WJSM
Details
Details:

Vinyl LP soundtrack from Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange (1971). A Clockwork Orange is a dystopian crime film based on Anthony Burgess's 1962 novella.

The film chronicles the horrific crime spree of his gang, his capture, and attempted rehabilitation via controversial psychological conditioning. The soundtrack was released in 1971 and is a musical thematic extension of Alex's (and the viewer's) psychological conditioning.

Ken Burns: The Roosevelts - An Intimate History chronicles the lives of Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, three members of the most prominent and influential family in American politics. It is the first time in a major documentary television series that their individual stories have been interwoven into a single narrative. This seven-part, 14-hour film follows the Roosevelts for more than a century, from Theodore's birth in 1858 to Eleanor's death in 1962. Over the course of those years, Theodore would become the 26th President of the United States and his beloved niece, Eleanor, would marry his fifth cousin, Franklin, who became the 32nd President of the United States. Together, these three individuals not only redefined the relationship Americans had with their government and with each other, but also redefined the role of the United States within the wider world. The series encompasses the history the Roosevelts helped to shape: the creation of National Parks, the digging of the Panama Canal, the passage of innovative New Deal programs, the defeat of Hitler, and the postwar struggles for civil rights at home and human rights abroad. It is also an intimate human story about love, betrayal, family loyalty, personal courage, and the conquest of fear.
