Groundbreaking Ceremony for new library.

Hannah Buckland

Hannah Buckland
Director of Library Services

Welcome to the library! Now that our beautiful new building is open, we’re eager to share our space, resources, and services with the entire community. Anyone can borrow our materials! If you’re not an LLTC student or employee, just fill out a registration form to receive your library card.

Along with our growing collection of books and digital resources, the library offers homework help, research assistance, public computers, iPad stations, and quiet places to study, read, meet with small groups, and relax. We always have local newspapers available for reading, and we keep children’s books on hand, too, so even our youngest visitors have something to check out. In the future, we look forward to expanding our tribal archive and opening up the library for college and community events. This library is your library, so if you have any suggestions regarding materials we should add or activities we should host, or if you’re interested in collaborating on any events or projects, please let us know. We're here to help you find the information you need, so if you have any questions at all, come ask us first!
