Skidmore Retiree Library

The Scribner Library offers a variety of services for Skidmore retirees.

These include the Retiree Library Collection, which includes materials (books, feature films, documentaries) on subjects such as retirement planning (both financial and psychological), health, and life writing. You may access items by browsing the subject headings listed on this page and may also search the library catalog, using the keywords "retiree library." All materials are integrated into the library’s main collection and are shelved according to format and subject matter.

The collection was started with funding from an award from the American Council on Education and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The 2012 award recognized Skidmore College’s innovative practices in supporting faculty retirement.

We are continuing to build the collection. If you wish to add materials to the retiree library, please send your suggestions to Susan Kress at
