Things Left in the Library

With the completion of Shipley's Learning and Research Center (also known as "The LARC"), the opportunity arose to sift through the library's book collection. In this week's post, librarian and English teacher Kate Gearhart takes us through the history of some of the things she found left behind in the library.


In the upper left-hand corner of this photo, there’s a letter written to “Middle House,” which no longer exists on Shipley’s campus. The building was on Shipley’s Lower Campus near Beechwood and Howland House and was for students in Grades 4-7.
