Children may register any time to participate in the summer reading program and earn prizes for the minutes/books read. Parents are encouraged to sign up their children and register for a library card if they do not have one. Teens and adults will have their name entered in a drawing for each book they read or listen to. At the end of summer reading some lucky reader will win a $50 gift card.

The library board of trustees will hold their monthly meeting Wednesday, May 29, 4:30 P.M. in the library meeting room.

The Book Challenge for May is to read a book about mental health. Let us know when you have completed the challenge to have your name entered to win a gift card from a local business.

The library and Aaniiih Nakoda College will be offering a Quick Books class on Fridays from June 7 through July 12, 9-12 A.M. Lori Owens will be instructing the class and a fee will be charged. Watch for more information coming soon!

Save yourself a trip! If you live at the agency but do not have a way to get to the Harlem Public Library, just notify Amber Harris at Aaniiih Nakoda College Library. She will let us know and we will send the item(s) out to Ft. Belknap with the help of a volunteer driver. Also if you wish to check materials out from Aaniiih Nakoda College Library we can have them delivered to the Harlem Library and you may pick them up there. You must have a library card and be in good standing. Contact either library for more information.

The library has received a gift book “Edward S. Curtis: Unpublished Plains” that contains a collection of almost 200 previously unpublished photographs taken by Edward Curtis in the early 1900s for “The North American Indian Project.” This book’s collection comes from two different sources. The first is the Curtis/Greybill Family Collection, which consists of many images that were stored away in the home of Curtis’ grandson, James Greybill, for over 40 years. The second source is the Library of Congress. Besides photographs this work contains memoirs and conversations with Native friends.
