Library services for Vernon College exist to support the instructional program by providing materials and services to students, faculty and staff. Library services were first offered in the Learning Resource Center on the Vernon campus in 1972 when classes met for the first time. The name was changed to Wright Library in 1988. This was done in memory of Leroy and Una Lee Wright, founders of the Wright Brand Foods. As other campuses were established, library services were extended to these satellite centers. There are collections of print materials located at the Century City Center, the Skills Training Center, and the Seymour Nursing Center. Collections of electronic resources are available via the Internet. History of Library Program
