History

Campbell University's main library moved into its current location in 2010 and was named Wiggins Memorial Library in memory of Dr. Norman Adrian Wiggins and in honor of his wife Dr. Mildred Harmon Wiggins. Dr. Wiggins served as president of Campbell University from 1967-2003, and during those 37 years Dr. Mildred Wiggins worked quietly behind the scenes to support her husband and the Campbell mission. The library reflects the Wiggins' passion and vision for education, providing a dynamic learning environment for students and serving as the center of the University's intellectual life. The original campus library, designated in 1894, was destroyed by fire in 1900, and Carrie Rich Memorial Library was established in 1923.
