Parents Weekend: Treasures from the Library: Great Books and Famous Collections, 9:30-10:30

Thomas Cooper Library, Graniteville Room, Mezzanine Level
Oct 3, 2009
The heart of the University's rare book collection, books purchased or donated during the early 19th century, remains in the library of the the original South Carolina College. Since then, the University has added some amazing items including Francis Marion's regimental muster roll, Robert Burns' porridge bowl, Giuseppe Garibaldi's sword, and the Lord Proprietors' grant and seal. Drop in and see what treasures we have pulled from the rare books vault for your special viewing. Full schedule for Parents Weekend
