Q: When was the KSU Library founded?


KSU's first library opened in 1967 located in what is now the Pilcher Public Service Building.  In 1981, the current, 100,000 square foot building was dedicated in honor of KSU's first president Horace W. Sturgis.

In 2012, renovation added five group presentation rooms, five additional study rooms, three classrooms, and more seating.

During the spring of 2013, the Georgia General Assembly approved an additional $4.4 million dollars to renovate the ground floor of the Library.  That floor reopened August 17, 2015 as the Learning Commons. The first floor was also renovated in fall 2015 and opened in January 2016 with a completely new OwlSpace and 5 Collaborative Technology rooms.
