2022 marks the 15th year of the Dr. Phail Wynn Jr. Collection at Durham Tech Library’s Main Campus. After retiring, Dr. Phail Wynn Jr., president of Durham Tech from 1980 to 2007, made a great investment in Durham Tech Libraries to create a new, special collection: The Dr. Phail Wynn Jr. Collection.
The Dr. Phail Wynn Jr. Collection touches upon social responsibility and civic engagement, including topics such as ecology and environmental studies, fighting poverty, cultural awareness, appreciating diversity, global citizenship, teaching tolerance, and promoting world peace.
We continue the development of this very special collection with brand new materials every year.
Today, we highlight a few new beautiful additions to the collection, including the gorgeously illustrated The Atlas of a Changing Climate and new resources on personal sustainability in titles like Can I Recycle This? and Simply Sustainable.
Generous users can always contribute to the legacy of Dr. Phail Wynn Jr. by donating to the Dr. Wynn Jr. Memorial Funds, which includes The Dr. Phail Wynn, Jr. Library Endowment, or by coming into the library and checking out a new book from the collection!
