A large selection of fiction and non-fiction works written by Native authors and focusing on Native American culture has been added to the Lake Agassiz Regional Library collection. This collection is made possible by a project of the Minnesota Office of Indian Education using federal funding, Library Service and Technology Act [LS 00-17-0024-17]. The collection boasts works such as “Buffalo Song” by Joseph Bruchac, “The Birchbark House” by Louise Erdrich and more, and offers something for all age groups from childhood to adulthood.
To access the full collection of works, library customers can visit www.larl.org and search the catalog for “MN American Indian Literature” using the keyword search and quotation marks. While the collection was originally designed for use by educators teaching grades K-12, the materials have been wildly popular for audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
