Holiday creches to be on display

MARQUETTE – More than 100 holiday creches from around the world will be on display Thursday until Jan. 24 at the Peter White Pubic Library, Marquette.

The figurines depicting the Nativity story are part of the extensive collection of Fred and Carol Margrif that have been gathered for more than 20 years on their travels across the globe and through gifts from friends and relatives. Handmade creches from countries in North and South America, Africa and Europe reflect the native arts and craftsmanship of that region.

Carol Margrif will be presenting a talk on the collection at 7 p.m. Thursday in the library’s community room.
