Sorting and Packing

The temporary relocation to Dewey Field Road has given us the impetus to sort through many things that have been squirreled away in Reed Hall. One of the biggest jobs has been the Classics Library in Reed 322. Aided by Classics majors Zach Wang ’20 and Matt Nolan ’21, faculty members have been organizing and dividing our collection of several thousand books, some of which go back to the earliest days of the College. We found many things, from a volume on Chicken Farming in Ancient Rome to a book in Egyptian hieroglyphics! Some outdated or duplicated items have now been got rid of, to make space for new acquisitions next year. When we return to Reed Hall next September, we will be able to create a more usable library to support learning and research in Classics.
