Modern panels of new library at Arkansas State Teachers College contrasted sharply with the classic design of the E.E. Cordley Science Building. The $1,200,000 facility is part of a $1,800,000 building program on the campus. The library, to house some 200,000 volumes, is fashioned after the one at Oklahoma State University, Dr. Silas D. Snow, president, said. The project is expected to be finished in July. Nabholz Construction Co. of Conway is the contractor. Other projects include a $250,000 addition to the cafeteria and a $350,000 addition to the Student Center. The latter two projects will be completed in September, Dr. Snow said.
