The Edward Mcelwain Memorial Library serves residents of the Hualapai Reservation in Arizona. With the next closest library more than 50 miles away, it is the only library option available for residents of this small rural community. To help develop services in a professional and culturally sensitive manner, the librarian plans to participate in the Arizona Library Association conference and network with other tribal or rural librarians to share best practices, funding opportunities, and lessons learned. Learning about what other tribes or rural communities are doing will help guide future programming and acquisitions.
