Welcome to the MCTC Library. These pages are intended to introduce you to our library, the resources we support and the services we provide.
One of the most notable features of the Library building is the art installation Silences, a commissioned Public Art Work by New York artist Dennis Adams. The work consists of seventeen double-sided light boxes, each depicting a different pair of hands holding a book with the word "silence" in its title. Silences was funded by the MN State Arts Board Percent for Art Program.
