The Hunt Memorial Library, also called the Learning Resources Center or LRC, is named in honor of Mr. Henry A. Hunt, Sr., the second principal of the Fort Valley Normal and Industrial School. “The mission of the Hunt Library is to support study and research by providing a collection of print and non-print (including digital) resources for use by students and faculty. The library also offers a variety of services, instruction, and cultural and extra-curricular activities. In achieving its goals the library helps students become critical and effective information users. The goals of the Library are to provide:
