Tuzzy Consortium Library provides culturally responsive services and collections that enrich the lives and expand the horizons of the people of the North Slope of Alaska. The project will reach eight village libraries that are among the few educational and informational options available to residents of those remote, isolated areas, including Anaktuvuk Pass, Atqasuk, Nuiqsut, Kaktovik, Point Hope, Point Lay, Wainwright and Utqiagvik. A library technician at each location maintains operations and organizes activities such as summer reading programs. The technicians will participate in the annual conference of the Alaska Library Association, where they can learn best practices and new tools to incorporate into library operations.
