Erwin Library

Welcome to the Clyde A. Erwin, Jr. Library, located in the Wayne Learning Center, with entrances on the third floor beside the elevators and on the third floor landing of the atrium stairwell. Part of the Community College Libraries in North Carolina (CCLINC) consortium, with a shared online catalog, the Erwin Library print collections include over thirty-two thousand books and more than thirty print periodical and newspaper subscriptions. Accessible through the WCC Single Search aggregate database are nearly twenty-five thousand streaming videos, as well as thousands of electronic books, articles and images from twenty-nine research databases in addition to those subscribed to through NC LIVE.


Don’t get boxed in to a boring day outside!  Come on inside the library and join your friends for Children’s Storytime in the Erwin Library on Wednesday, July 23rd from 9:00-10:00 a.m.?

Get Your Head In the Game! That’s what the new bulletin board outside the Erwin Library entrance encourages all of us to do for the new semester; learn lessons of focus, drive, and determination to be the best you can be from biographies and narratives about athletes and sports, from all time periods and a variety of cultures.

May 2014 marks the 140thrunning of the Kentucky Derby horse race at Churchill Downs racetrack.  Find books on famous thoroughbred horses, on raising and training horses, as well as the history of horse racing in the Erwin Library’s Reference Area book display.  In the same area  you may also browse a book display centered around the 8oth anniversary of the deaths on May 23, 1934 of notorious American outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. Also included in this display are many other books about similar criminals on the run, such as John Dillinger and Al Capone, all active amid the turmoil of the Depression Era crime wave in the United States.  Sometimes you run to win, and sometimes you just run to keep from giving up.

What did WCC students do in 1972? How about those hairdos .. and that’s the faculty! You’ll see it was a slightly different world, but still Goldsboro and still our school as you flip through thirteen newly digitized WCC Yearbooks (Yearbooks link) published between 1964 and 1985, now part of the WCC Historical Archives.  You’ll also find the WCC Campus Voice newspaper (See: Newspapers) published between 1968 and 2008, and the WCC Renaissance literary magazine (See: Campus Publications) for 1985 through the present.

As well as browsing among, or checking out, books from the Erwin Library exhibits and collections to read about these topics, you may wish to discover more on the internet from relevant links found in the Erwin Library’s Blog.
