The Blackfeet Tribal College Library, in partnership with the University of North Carolina at Greensboro Department of Library, will design a study of how children, youth, and families of the Blackfeet Nation currently use library services. The Reading Nation project will take input from an advisory committee of experts and conduct an environmental scan to understand the current state and potential factors impacting tribal member use of library services. It will later design and pilot a community assessment process to identify needs and challenges tribal members face in using public and community college libraries with a specific focus on children and youth services. With this planning grant, the college intends to discover ways libraries can collaborate to create an environment the supports reading for Blackfeet children, youth, and their caregivers.
