CECH Library is home to the Kretschmer Collection, a collection of over 275 books about indigenous cultures written and/or illustrated by Native American authors and artists. Collected by Professors Emeriti Richard and Laura Kretschmer, these books were donated to CECH Library so that many could benefit from their powerful messages and thought-provoking stories.
The collection, with its range of subjects and levels, serves to encourage learning about Native American cultures. Themes present in these books include language, family, nature, folklore, prehistory, and resilience.
You can explore the many brilliant books of the Kretschmer Collection on the third floor of the CECH Library, located in the Teachers-Dyer Complex 300.
