Exclusive Tours: McCracken Library
Join Eric Rossborough, Associate Librarian and Senior Cataloger of the McCracken Research Library, on September 15th at 6pm in exploring the sixth institution of the Center of the West. Usually hidden behind closed doors, Exclusive Tours is cracking open the stacks and diving into the lives and legends of the written wild west.
Does the rich, warm smell of old books call to you? Does discovering the secrets and histories of the Center of the West’s sixth institution pique your interest?
Then be sure to join us for our 2-hour premium Exclusive Tours and Toddies event featuring the McCracken Research Library collection. The McCracken holds 36,000 books, more than 600 numbered manuscript collections, over one million photographic images, and countless stories.
Whether it’s first edition publications, original photographs, vintage maps, or forgotten letters, the McCracken Research Library houses a vast collection of rare archival items and materials that provide insights into our region’s history. Guests at this Exclusive Tours and Toddies will get up close to words written by Lewis and Clark, papers touched by Buffalo Bill, and photographs taken by Harold McCracken himself.
Following the tour, Eric Rossborough will bring the group back to the Exclusive Tours Depot for Q&A, custom charcuterie, and adult beverages. Guests can enjoy our sweet “Manuscript Melts” and toast to the memory of Harold McCracken and his historic Northern Expeditions with our special “Arctic Explorer” cocktail.
