We are pleased to announce that the Midwood Elementary School Scrapbook is now available in the Robinson-Spangler Carolina Room for our patrons to enjoy. The scrapbook dates from between 1940-1960, and includes newspaper clippings about the school, students, and staff members, as well as thank you notes to teachers, and a few group photographs.
