Abstract: The Paul Barret Jr. Library was built in 2005. Before then the library was housed in Burrow. It was dedicated to Paul Barret Jr. for his donation. He was a Rhodes alum and nephew of the donors who made Burrow Library possible. The library is one of three buildings on campus that has a tower. The library also has many pointed arches, especially in the walkway on the back side of the library. Like many buildings on campus, it has multiple bay windows as well as very large windows on the second story for natural reading light. There is a mural on the second story ceiling of the night sky with correct astronomy.
