Important Update!

The Tribal Library will be closed until further notice.

You know it is serious when libraries close! We will still be available to answer your research questions email library@jamestowntribe.org. If you need reading material in the meantime, we highly suggest using your public library card to access Washington Anytime Library at https://anytime.overdrive.com/anytime-north/content. Let us know if you need help downloading e- or audio books. In the meantime, yəhúməct (take care of yourself)!

Spotlight!

We have two three important tasks this year

All are important but the most important is to stay healthy! Please follow the guidelines that the medical experts are giving us. This pandemic is serious. Don't just go by random Google searches until you find one you "like." You can find links to up-to-date informaton on Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). You'll find links for the local newspapers on the Research page along with access to newspapers state and worldwide at Newsbank and other research at ProQuest. Email library@jamestowntribe.org for login information for both.

The 2020 Census is next. Sitting at home practicing your social distancing is a good time to fill it out. Click here for more information. Unfortunately you can't come to the Library for help but our wifi is still active if you want to sit outside. It is important that everyone in the United States is counted. Census results affect your community every day. School lunches. Plans for highways. Support for firefighters and families in need. It also determines congressional representation. Which leads us to our second important task this year:

When we're past the pandemic (we will get past it!), we'll be facing elections. While we don't know how that will all proceed this year, it is still important that you be informed. Regardless of your political leanings, it is important for each and everyone of us to not only vote, but to vote from a position of knowledgeOur Civic Engagement page has numerous links to help you check facts, learn about important issues in Indian Country, and contact your representatives. Your owe it to yourself, your community, and your country to vote with your head not just your heart.

Speaking of voting, check out the Community Voice (at left) and give us your thoughts. Although the pandemic has interrupted everything, we are hopeful that someday we will expand the Library for new exhibits. No reason we can't all dream right now about what that space might look like.

yəhúməct! (take care of yourself!) 

We welcome your comments and suggestions! We want this site to be useful for you and others so please give us your suggestions for improving it. Feel free to email library@jamestowntribe.org.
