Welcome to the Tallman Library

The Tallman Library opened to students and staff for the 2015-2016 school year. Herman Jesse Tallman (Alcoa High School Class of 1970), and Karen Ramsey Tallman (Alcoa High School Class of 1969) both have a passion for Alcoa High School. They believe in the value of public education and they believe in Alcoa High School’s mission. We are proud to name our library after the Tallmans and we take to heart their message, the gift of learning is a gift for life.
