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.

Award Winning Library
