About the Courtright Memorial Library
The library was opened in 1972, and in 1979, through the generosity of A. Monroe Courtright ’40, the building was named in honor of Robert and Ada Courtright, the donor’s parents. The Courtright Memorial Library was most recently renovated in 2013, and improvements are being made on a regular basis to better serve the university.
