Jamestown S'Klallam Tribal Library: About ~ táqənəxʷ

Welcome! ʔənʔá či č̕ə́yəxʷ

The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Library is open to the public and specializes in materials by and about Native American Indians
with a special focus on the people of the Northwest Coast.

Our Goal is to collect and provide access to American Indian materials and resources not otherwise widely available, and to be a lifelong learning center for 21st century literacies.

Our Mission is to provide the Tribal community and the general public with access to information on American Indian history and culture; to support the Jamestown community in the efforts to achieve self-sufficiency; and to assist Tribal programs in providing service to the community.

Our Collections

Our collection specializes in Native American authors and topics, both historical and contemporary, with a focus on the Pacific Northwest.

  • Rare reference materials on the S’Klallam people and other inhabitants of the Olympic Peninsula.
  • Adult and juvenile nonfiction
  • Recreational fiction for adults, young adults, and children
  • Movies, music CDs, audiobooks
  • Magazines and newspapers
  • Newsletters from other tribes
