Shells on Display at Lepper Library

We have a Shell collection being shared by Robin Tener. This is a portion of her 160+ shells that includes the smallest shell an Angulated Wentletrap and the largest is a Horse Conch. During her childhood, she began collecting shells on family trips to Florida and Virginia Beach, VA. Her interest in conchology grew even more after her parents relocated to Fort Myers Beach Florida. She continued to collect shells when she visited their home on Estero Island. She has collected shells on Sanibel Island, one of the best shelling beaches in the world. Her parents, Mary Lou and Chuck Rowe were always supportive of her interest and she has created this display in their memory.

If you have a unique or fun collection that you would like to share, contact or call for more information at 330-424-3117.
