The Catawba Indian Nation will create a community resource center to consolidate its library collections, archives, and related materials that are currently dispersed in different locations. The new space will support expanded operational hours and improved handicap access. The tribe will hire a library coordinator, purchase supplies and equipment to support the new center, and plan and implement activities for youth and adults in the Catawba community. Activities may include book clubs, library visits, cultural studies, genealogy clubs, and GED programming and tutoring. The project will provide access to learning resources in a single safe location to help share the history and culture of the Catawba Nation to young people and other patrons.
