Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians

Log Number: NAB-250269-OLS-21

The only public library on the Turtle Mountain Chippewa Reservation plans to enhance its collection, provide targeted programming, and extend its hours to increase access to the library and all services offered. For many in the community, the library provides their only access to computers and the internet. Hiring a part-time staff member will allow the library to extend its evening hours. The library will work with the language and culture committee at the Turtle Mountain Community College to bring in traditional speakers for workshops, storytelling, and free community events. Staff will enhance skills by attending the annual conferences of the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums and the North Dakota Library Association.
