Students, Faculty, Staff, Administrators, and Community Patrons:
The library staff encourages you to participate in the Thigpen Library survey. The survey’s purpose is to learn how you use the library and its resources and what your satisfaction level is with various library services at the Thigpen Library and the open computer lab.
Copies are available inside the library on the Gallatin campus. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and help us better understand your library needs.
Several events have been planned at the Thigpen Library and the Sumner County public libraries as part of the One Book, One Community project. (For more information about this project, go to www.volstate.edu/OneBook.) Author Sharyn McCrumb will visit the Gallatin campus on October 24. She is the author of The Ballad of Frankie Silver, the title chosen for the One Book, One Community project. She will speak at 7 p.m. in the Thigpen Library. Other events are:
Gallatin Public Library (452-1722): Appalachian storytellers Dee Kimbrell and Lynda Evjen, Tuesday, September 17, 5:30 p.m. and the Trammel Creek Bluegrass Band, October 1, 5:00 p.m.

“Your number #1 campus resource is the Thigpen Library”. In addition to the Gallatin campus, library services are available at the Highland Crest, Livingston and McGavock sites. Whichever campus you are attending, visit the library, meet the librarians, and discover the library services available to you. Research assistance is available at each location. If you’re attending classes at an off-campus site, you can request materials from the Thigpen Library be sent to your site for you.
The Thigpen Library will be offering several workshops this semester. Information about the workshops and the schedule are available at libguides.volstate.edu/workshops
The Library is open on both floors! Come take a look and find the research you need for summer classes. We encourage you to ask for research assistance 🙂
