We make history accessible. The Clarke Historical Library's two galleries are used to display and interpret the Library’s historical and unique collections.
Abundant Waters: Our Relationship with Michigan’s Most Precious Resource
Some exhibits that have been prepared by the Clarke Historical Library staff are available for loan. Traveling exhibits are available on the following topics:

The exhibits may be borrowed without direct cost. The borrower is responsible for transportation of the exhibit from Mt. Pleasant to the exhibit site, as well as for returning the material when the loan is completed, insurance of the items while on loan, and, in the case of original material, ensuring proper preservation standards and appropriate security precautions are in place.
