The library is named after Clara Wood Gould who was the wife James D. Gould. Mr. Gould was a local businessman who became a member of University System Board of Regents. Mr. Gould oversaw the arrangements to charter the college and obtain the land to build the main campus in 1961 for what would be known as Brunswick College. The library was named to honor the work that he did in founding the college, however, Mr. Gould insisted it be named in memorial to his late wife Clara Wood Gould rather than himself.
