Burrow Library (1951-2005) Collection home page

Groundbreaking for the new library was January 5, 1951 and it was dedicated October 8, 1953. Burrow Library was the generous gift of Mr. and Mrs. A. K. Burrow of Memphis. Mr. Burrow also helped finance the college's move from Clarksville and he served as a College Trustuee for many years. The collections and staff moved to the Paul Barret, Jr. Library in 2005 and Burrow Library underwent extensive renovations. It was rededicated as the Burrow Center for Student Opportunity in 2008.
