History of the CMC Steamboat Springs Campus

"Miracle on a Mountain" tells the history of our campus in the words of the founder and first president of Yampa Valley College (now the Steamboat Springs Campus of Colorado Mountain College) Lucile "Lucy" Bogue.

The timeline for the Steamboat Springs Campus of CMC was created by one of our very own professors (retired) George Bagwell, and it very nicely complements the book!

Why Libraries Matter

Lots of people ask:  "Doesn't Google replace the library?  Aren't libraries dying??"

Our answer is a resounding no!  The following image perhaps begins to explain why.
