It’s the VVC college library, and it is proudly calling attention to its wonderful collection of historical information as it relates to the Victor Valley area of the High Desert. The collection contains over 2,000 photograph, 100 oral histories, papers, newspaper articles and rare books about the area. This collection has been made possible through the considerable work of many people, but chief among them are Fran Elgin and Leo Lyman.
