About Bailey

The Olin C. Bailey Library opened her doors in 1994 after moving from cramped and damp quarters of the old underground library.  She stands on a corner of the Hendrix campus where the football stadium used to be. 

Bailey Library contains much more than her 200,000 books.  Adjacent to the library is the Snoddy Academic Resource Center, which houses a 24/7 computer lab, study carrels, the Writing Center, and seminar room.  The second floor of the library contains the Arkansas United Methodist Archives and the Hendrix College Archives.

Also within the library you will find...librarians!  And other members of the library staff who make accessing the library collections possible.
