Thompson Library Celebrates Native American Month

November is Native American Heritage Month.

AmericanIndian2If you are interested in learning about the history and culture of the peoples native to these lands, please stop by the Thompson Library and check out our current display case.   It’s located on the 3rd floor of our library, directly across the room from the main entrance.  (Ask at the front desk if you need assistance locating the case.)

 

AmeicanIndian5Liz Svoboda, reference librarian at Thompson Library, has assembled a diverse group of materials drawn from our collection that explores the history, culture, stories, dress, politics, language, literature, and art of American Indians.

 

Materials range from historical political books through DVDs, from books on art and inspiration to books on language and clothing to various databases that provide interesting and useful information about and for Native Americans.

AmericanIndian3It’s an interesting collection containing information about our first people that you may — or may not — know about.

 

 

Help celebrate the contributions of a wide variety of different AmericanIndian4groups, tribal units and first nations of the native American Indians by learning something new about those in who’s footsteps you now walk.

You may be amazed at what you discover!
