November is Native American Heritage Month

November is permanently designated by the nation as a special place on the calendar to honor the contributions, achievements, sacrifices, and cultural and historical legacy of the original inhabitants of what is now the United States and their descendants: the American Indian and Alaska Native people.

Here at the Lopez Library, we celebrate diverse Native American voices, culture, and histories with a special month-long display of adult, YA, and children’s books. Some of the authors on display include Sherman Alexie, Louise Erdrich, N. Scott Momaday, Leslie Marmon Silko, Diane Glancy, Vine Deloria Jr., Paula Gunn Allen, and others. We encourage you to check out a book and take it home!

To see a sample of the display from home, go to the Lopez Library Catalog online and look for the Native American Heritage Month Booklist under “What’s Hot.” Feel free to place a book on hold, and it will be waiting for you at the library.
