More than 8,000 books given in December by the Holy Trinity Monastery and Spiritual Center in Pikesville will soon be on the shelves of the Villa Julie College's library. The books -- including Tales from the Decameron, Tolstoy's complete works and Diary of a Madman -- are classics in history, literature and the social sciences, and were given to the college by the monastery to make room for a larger area for retreat groups at the spiritual center.

The equipment appeared four years ago when crews began renovating the old Blue Cross and Blue Shield building on York Road to create a new computer science building. It reappeared as workers demolished 4,800 seats in the old sports stadium and built a new complex, Unitas Stadium. The crane now hovers over the Fine Arts Center, which is being renovated and expanded.
