Tour: Central Library Special Collections

Join the St. Catherine University SLA Student Group for a tour of special collections at the Hennepin County Central Library in downtown Minneapolis. Librarian Marcelyn Sletten will take us through the Milestones Collection in the Children's Library, and then librarian Heather Lawton will show us the collections in the Athenaeum. These unique collections are carefully preserved by the public library for research purposes. Both of these areas are closed to the public, so don't miss this opportunity!
