The Library is a public reading room on the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the recent controversy over the Smithsonian Institution's Enola Gay exhibition.

Our intention is not to simply engage ourselves in a political debate about the bomb or the exhibition, but to create a site for education that offers a variety of perspectives in order to engender a broader public dialog than is currently available.
