Download pdf | Full Screen View

Summary:
Ruskin's first library was opened in 1926 in the home of Harriett Orcutt, our first librarian. This is a partial list of the initial holdings of the library. Note the high emphasis on history and the French language. Also there is an extensive list of classic literature. Missing, at least from this list, are two of Ms. Orcutt's own books: A Modern Love Story, and The Empire of the Invisibles. Later the library was moved to the Ruskin Woman's Club building (formerly the President's Home for Ruskin College.)
