Duke Alum Donates $13.6 Million for University Libraries Renovation

Philanthropic donor David M. Rubenstein has committed $13.6 million to a decade-long renovation of Duke University Libraries set to begin in 2012. With the money, Duke hopes to transform the 1928 West Campus library building and its 1948 addition into a state-of-the-art research facility. Duke plans to rename the renovated special library after Rubenstein who worked for Duke University Libraries when he was a student at the school.
