Daily Inter Lake: FVCC library acquires extraordinary Western book collection
Daily Inter Lake: FVCC library acquires extraordinary Western book collection. “The Old West is back and wild as ever at the Broussard Family Library and Learning Commons at Flathead Valley Community College, thanks to a significant donation of Western literature. On Nov. 10 Whitefish resident Nick Chickering and his wife Karen presented the college with a gift of 287 rare Western Americana books — many of them written in the 1800s and some in the 1700s — about the Rocky Mountains, exploration of the West, the Northwest, the Southwest and the tribes.” The library is looking into digitizing the books. I certainly hope they do!
