Brian Hart has been chosen as the director of the Forsyth County Public Library system and will start May 4. Hart is currently the deputy director for the Greensboro Public Library system. He succeeds Sylvia Sprinkle-Hamlin, who retired on December 30, 2019, after 40 years of service. 

Before joining the Greensboro Public Library system, Hart was assistant director for the Middle Georgia Regional Library and served as a branch manager in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library system. 

The American Library Association (ALA) recognized Hart as an “emerging leader” in 2014. In 2017, Hart served on ALA’s prestigious Caldecott Award selection committee, which since 1937 annually recognizes the best American picture book for children. 

“Forsyth County is pleased Brian accepted its offer to lead our library system,” said County Deputy Manager Damon Sanders-Pratt. “He comes well recommended and our library patrons and partners will appreciate his energy, leadership, and vision.” 

Hart is a native of Charlotte. He earned his master’s degree in Library Science from the University of South Carolina in Columbia and his bachelor’s degree in English from South Carolina State University in Orangeburg. He lives in Kernersville with his wife, Rena, daughters, Nia and Nyla, and son, Noble.
