Spotlight on the Dr. Phail Wynn Jr. Special Collection

Dr. Phail Wynn Jr, was president of Durham Technical Community College from 1980-2007. When Dr. Wynn made a generous donation to the library in 2007, the library created a special collection in his name.  Dr. Wynn requested the collection pertain to socially responsible topics such as ecology and the environment, cultural awareness, global citizenship, teaching tolerance, appreciating diversity, fighting poverty, and promoting world peace.

The library is very proud of this collection and we add new materials each year.  Students, faculty, and staff use and appreciate the resources in this collection. Books can be borrowed for three weeks with one renewal.  The collection is located on the upper level of the library.  Here are some of the recent additions to the collection:
