About Us

david brydenWelcome to the Libraries at High Point University! My name is David Bryden. I have been the Director of Library Services since 2005, and I love every minute of my time at HPU.

We have several library spaces at High Point University: Herman H. and Louise M. Smith Library is the main library and holds the majority of our book collection; the Wanek Center Learning Commons is our quiet study space with a young adult and popular fiction collection; and our most recent library is the School of Education Curriculum Center, which holds the juvenile collection, including a variety of education resources.

We also maintain a furniture and interior design collection in Norton Hall, a small collection in the Qubein School of Communication, and we staff the Centennial Village Research Center. We take great pride in our library spaces and our staff: Our librarians are the most helpful group of professionals that you could possibly find. From reference services and the time that we spend helping our students to the care we take to provide an array of academic resources for our patrons, we endeavor to make your time at our libraries helpful and pleasant. Please get in touch with me if you have any concerns or questions about our libraries, and I will help in any way that I can.
