Keweenaw Bay Indian Community

Log Number: NAB-250374-OLS-21

The Keweenaw Bay Indian Community Library in Baranga, Michigan, will organize new programs to engage families, promote literacy skills, and increase community access to library resources. They plan to create Dibaajimowin Miikana (story trails) focused on young readers, encouraging families to go outdoors, walk, and read new stories along trails in rural neighborhoods. Mazina’iganan (remote self-service library locations) will provide the community convenient access to library materials at sites throughout the reservation. To help improve quality of services and programming, library staff will participate in workshops and trainings sponsored by the Upper Peninsula Region of Library Cooperation and the Library of Michigan.
