DeTamble Library Facility

The Library was constructed in 1964 through a legacy to the First Presbyterian Church of Winston-Salem from the estate of Mr. and Mrs. Fred DeTamble and funds from the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation and the Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation. The 16,384 square foot structure was enlarged in 1995 to 18,168 square feet with a gift from the Pew Foundation.

The first floor includes the Information Desk, student lounge, copier, the Popular Reading Collection, the Archives, and reference/research areas.

Second floor is home to periodicals, the Children’s Literature Collection, computers, printers, as well as study desks and tables, and the Reynolds Reading Room. The microfilm and microfiche collections and equipment are also located on this floor.

The third floor houses the majority of the book collection, and the Library Classroom. The Writing Center is located in the 3rd floor Classroom, and provides peer tutoring for students during posted hours.
