April is one of the most joyful months for Thigpen Library. Why? I’m glad you asked.
April is Autism Awareness Month.
April includes National Library Week (April 9-15, 2017).
Thigpen Library in Gallatin is honoring these important occasions throughout the month of April with several lovely displays (upstairs, downstairs, and lobby).
Another reason to visit Thigpen Library in April? Relieve some stress!
Our “Secret Cinema” and “LOL” film displays will provide you with some great movie-viewing options. Express yourself by writing your own poem or creating your own Haiku on our whiteboard display.
Game Day (ping pong! cards! board games!) will be held on April 12 (10a – 2p, Rochelle Center) bring a friend, play a game, and grab a treat.
But – wait! There’s more: wonderful surprises and support in store for students throughout the month of April. Stop by your Vol State in Gallatin library to explore and enjoy. Happy April, everyone!
