Welcome Back Students 2015!

The Library would like to welcome back our new and returning students for Fall 2015!  We have put together a “Gator Spirit” display to celebrate the new impending semester. The new display is covered in our school colors: Purple, Green and Gold. You may also happen to see in the new display the two Gators, Thomas and Nelson.


Welcome back students and may your new semester be a great one!

Get Fit Day in the Library!

Yesterday, the 4th of August, was “Get Fit Day” at Thomas Nelson. All the staff were challenged to get up and move more instead of sitting behind our desks. Here in the library we take challenges VERY seriously, so we decided to “Yoga”. Below is the proof; we met the challenge!


In order from left to right: Susie Engle-Hill (writing center), Lilly Treadwell (circulation), Marcia Shepherd (writing center), and Tina Sampson (circulation)
