Tutt Library celebrates African American history at CC! Come check out the new display. We started with CC materials courtesy of Special Collections, and pulled books from the historical American West and education history. Our display case can only hold so many books -- for hundreds more, see the online catalog Tiger.
Thanks to Mimi Wheatwind for the great book display, and thanks to Jessy Randall in Special Collections for the clippings!

Here are a few photos from the end of Half Block, on a gorgeous Colorado day. The Bridge between Tutt North and Tutt South is now mostly gone, and you can see Pikes Peak peeking through with its snowy cap. A new set of stairs is up, but still open on one side and you can see the hard-working construction folks trooping up and down the steps.
The first Pulitzer Prize was given out in 1917; the awards are entering their 100th year. Our current Tutt Library book display features selected Pulitzer winning works.

Students, don't forget to renew your books via Tiger if the due date is during the break.
