Schoonover Center for Communication Building

Scripps Hall was built with a 1904 gift from Andrew Carnegie for the construction of a building for the university's library. The building was used as Ohio University's library until 1930 when Chubb Library was built. After the construction of Chubb Library, the former Carnegie Library was remodeled for classrooms and offices. The Carnegie Library building was renamed Carnegie Hall in 1936.
