Who does not like a nice book? On October 18, we are showing off some of our book collection. The archive collects four distinct areas: communal studies, regional history, special and rare books, and university materials. Check out our book assortment and learn about our staff’s “favorite” books in the archive is! There will be crafts too: learn and create your very own dust jacket bag.
