In honor of Alice Munro, the 2013 Nobel Prize winner in Literature, there is a display of works by and about this acclaimed Canadian author located on the new books shelf on McKillop Library’s first floor. Munro is known for her masterful short stories found in collections such as Carried Away, The Love of a Good Woman, and Runaway. Commentary on Munro’s stories is also available in critical works on display including Alice Munro’s Narrative Art. More information on Munro and other authors can be found in Literature Resource Center.

In our foyer, we have a display in the glass cases featuring pottery and projectile points on loan from Jon Bernard Marcoux of the Cultural and Historical Preservation program. Information on where the artifacts were found, as well as what year they are from can be found in the display (special thanks to Dr. Marcoux!).

Also featured are portraits and images of Native Americans, all found on the library’s database, ARTstor.
