Past Displays

Banned Books Week 2017

This year we celebrated our freedom to read during the national Banned Books Week. Our display housed information about why books are banned or challenged, as well as historical accounts of book burnings in the United States. We also had a "Banned Books Selfie Station" where patrons were encouraged to snap a selfie with whichever banned book they were caught reading!

"The Divide War: 113 Years of Cat-Griz Rivalry" is on display in the MSU Library display case in the main lobby. 

This display chronicled the spirited history of the Cat/Griz rivalry. It showcased images and information from the MSU Library's Special Collections, which included historical photographs from football programs and team photos dating back to the beginning of the rivalry in 1897. The display took viewers through the first matchup, the Butte years, and up to this year's Brawl of the Wild.
