Guide to Building Support for your Tribal Library

Growing your Tribal Library

Ongoing advocacy is important for any library, whether you’re at the very beginning stages of developing a tribal library or you’ve already done the work to develop, maintain, and extend library services for the Native people of your community. With limited resources, how do you get the support you need to continue to meet the needs of the people and the tribe? This guide is designed to help you and the people who believe in the power of the tribal library become successful advocates.
