Skidmore history book coming soon...
Remember the first Scribner Library, on the downtown campus? Remember Scribner as the first building on the new campus? Remember using the “gymbrary” while Scribner was enlarged and renovated?

If so, you won’t want to miss Make No Small Plans, the new Skidmore history book by Mary C. Lynn, professor of American studies. Jammed with facts and photos, reports and recollections, Make No Small Plans will be “required reading” for alumni of all eras, as well as Skidmore parents, Saratoga residents, and history buffs at large.
