Display: "The Horse Figure Collection"

"Collections" in the MIC Library

The Library is currently spotlighting a personal “collection” owned by a member of the Champlain College community.  The collection on display, “The Horse Figure Collection,” is on loan to us by a CC faculty spouse.  The figures are displayed in the glass case on the first floor of the Miller Information Commons.  Don’t miss this occasion to view an outstanding collection!  

For more information, call Paula at 865-6486.
