Northwest Missouri State University officials are celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the opening of the B-D Owens Library on the Maryville campus.
The July, 1979 fire of the Northwest Administration Building sparked several construction projects on campus including a new library which was completed in 1983. The university president at the time...B-D Owens pushed hard with state legislators to fund the project. Owens says he felt the University needed a library building that could adapt to future needs of the school.
