Inter-library loan The Laguna Public Library participates in the NM State Library Inter-library Loan (ILL) Program. The ILL program attempts to borrow materials the Laguna Public Library does not currently have, from participating libraries. See Inter-library Loan Guidelines for more information. Council Priority Relationship Education The Pueblo of Laguna places a high emphasis on education; therefore, the Laguna Public Library strives to fulfill its mission statement, “by providing access to quality information and resources that enhance and contribute to individual knowledge, enlightenment, and enjoyment through library materials and emerging technologies”. As a program promoting education, the importance of the library connects students of all ages with books, periodicals, DVDs, audio books, computers, emerging technologies, the internet, databases, printing and fax services, inter-library loan, reference assistance, cultural knowledge and history, literacy programs, and others. As a tribal library, we possess uniqueness from other public libraries. Tribal libraries serve multiple roles. They preserve tribal culture and history for future generations including the preservation of culture, cultural and tribal knowledge base, language, and oral history as well as special collections of important tribal and governmental documents. They develop collections that support culturally based curriculum and community members’ life-long learning needs. They interpret and create library policies and services that reflect community needs and protocol. They assist tribal members to develop reading skills, information literacy, and computer literacy. They are also seen as information centers to help combat common societal problems such as unemployment, addictions, dropouts, and diseases. Tribal librarians are an essential link between generations of the past and future.

We had the opportunity this week to use the NMSL STEM truck which was developed by Explora and funded by IMLS. The theme was Space Exploration. The kids were astronauts using tools to help them look at specimens and objects. They learned about craters and the impact from various heights and angles. They also played with lights to create shadows using a variety of objects. We are grateful these are available for all NM Libraries to use in their programs for FREE! 😁❤️
