The Library Collection

We have about 3000 items in the collection, mostly books but including DVDs and audio CDs. We also receive about a dozen newpapers from other tribes, such as Smoke Signals, Native Voice, Indian Life, Muckleshoot Monthly, and Indian Country Today.

About a third of our materials are for adults, and most of these are either culture- related or of local interest. The adult collection also includes items about health, education, family and child development topics. The children's books include both cultural materials and many of the standard general children's books, both for younger children and for middle school and up.

The catalog is not online yet. We uploaded most of the database to LibraryThing so you can get some idea of what titles we have. This link pulls out some of the culture and local-interest titles...
