September is National Literacy Month, and Rhodes is getting involved with bringing literature to the community via Little Free Libraries!
When Rhodes College, founded in 1848, moved from Clarksville, TN, to Memphis in 1925 under the leadership of President Charles E. Diehl, it was, Diehl said at the time, “the chance of a lifetime” to recreate an institution of excellence in a central location that provided easy access to students from all over the region along with greater opportunities for them to learn both inside and outside the classroom.
