- Ojibwa author Drew Hayden Taylor's comic novel Motorcycles and Sweetgrass has been nominated for the Canada Council for the Arts' Governor General’s Literary Award for Fiction. We have one of his books in our collection, The Night Wanderer, and will put the new one on our wishlist.
- Nerds rejoice. The entire archive of Popular Science is available free on the web at Google books. Oh it's glorious.
- Kayaker Rob Casey maintains a blog called The Elwha Project. River photographs, dam removal news, and an entertaining and even beautiful series of photographs of debris found on beaches along the Strait. See for example his September 16 post, Garbage Collected on the Elwha River Mouth.
- You can watch a 54 minute film, Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change on the IsumaTV website. Beautiful footage and the voices of elders (and scary first-hand testimony of climate change).
- ReadingRockets, a website for working with young readers, has a reading list of Native American Books. We have all but one of these books. Check the catalog for the ones you are interested in.
