"Little Library"

A "Little Library" is being sponsored by the Friends this year, another of chairperson Ginny Campbell's great ideas! This movement has gained ground in recent years, and such free libraries are springing up all over. The photo here is of the model Gordy Fox '66 built. The model is a replica of the old Normal school building that was demolished and replaced with Hartwell Hall in 1938. This is a half size model, the actual "library" will be about 6' long, and hold 25-35 books. It will be built over the winter, and placed on a yet to be determined spot on campus this coming spring. Cherise Oakley of the Friends group and her husband are donating a granite bench to place by the library, so the site will truly be a handsome and welcoming spot.
