  • History and Mission of the William H. White, Jr. Library

    Occupying three floors of Alex S. Hanes Hall, the William H. White Jr. Library and Belk Audio-Visual Center provide an intellectually stimulating atmosphere for students, faculty, and staff of Woodberry Forest School. The William H. White, Jr. library holds over 33,000 print volumes in open stacks and over ninety print periodicals, supplemented by over forty subscription databases that provide access to hundreds of thousands of abstracts and full-text articles from journals and newspapers as well as electronic books with remote access from both dorm and home. Two large reading rooms, fifty-five study carrels, a collaborative study space and five small study areas provide seating for approximately 150 students, all of whom have access to WFSNet in the library's fully wireless environment.  The Belk Audio-Visual Center houses over 3,000 DVDs for both educational and entertainment purposes.
     
    The primary mission of the William H. White, Jr. Library is to actively support the educational goals of Woodberry Forest School and to provide an intellectual and cultural environment within the community for study, research and reflection. 
     
    Originally completed in 1958, 18,000 square-foot Hanes Hall has been extensively remodeled through the generosity of friends and the family of the late Alexander Stephen Hanes, Jr. '32, and the Thomas Milburn Belk family.
