Mackenzie Library Launch Successful

This entry was posted on Thursday, November 10th, 2011

On October 18th we hosted a launch of the Mackenzie Library Project featuring historian and University of South Carolina Professor David Shields.  The evening showcased the original and recently restored books from the College’s first library with publishing dates that go from 1633 to 1769.  They were restored by the CofC’s Senior, Brien Biedler, and are a true work of art.
