Native Village of Eyak

Log Number: NAB-250277-OLS-21

Located in the Native Village of Eyak Cultural Center, the tribal library serves residents of this remote Alaskan village, providing community members with books and resources not available elsewhere. The library, which is used by tribal members and others in the town, will continue to add to its collection of books, magazines, and Native American materials and provide access to the internet. They plan to hire staff so that the library can be open to patrons at least 30 hours a week. During the summer months, the library will work with the Native Village of Eyak’s Youth Coordinator to bring the children’s book collection to young campers. To enhance their skills and better serve the community, library staff will participate in the annual conference of the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums.
