      Thousand Hills State Park is a mere three miles away from ATSU. “The park’s central feature is the lake, which boasts a variety of recreational opportunities, including swimming, fishing, boating and skiing. While the reservoir supplies water to the community, the park’s natural features recall a time when woodlands and savannas covered northern Missouri. Visitors can experience some of these natural wonders by hiking the park’s trails. Hiking, mountain bicycling and nature study are popular on-land activities.”

      The Adair County Public Library, conveniently located in Kirksville, offers children’s books, large print books, books on audio tape, videos, music compact discs, magazines, newspaper index, educational compact discs, and books on compact discs. There are also many community activities sponsored by the library.
