Little Library update

This is a recent photo of progress on the Little Library by the builder, Gordon Fox '66. As mentioned previously, the building represented is the old Normal school, c1870. This complex stood approximately where Hartwell Hall is today. It was torn down and replaced by Hartwell in 1938-39.

In addition to this splendid replica, Cherise Oakley and her husband are donating a granite bench to go with the Little Library. A selection of quotes about reading were put together and President Macpherson selected one, a quote from Margaret Fuller, "Today a reader, tomorrow a leader." This will be inscribed on the bench. The bench and the little building will be placed somewhere on the lawn of Hartwell this spring semester.
