Learning in Tribal Libraries -- ATALM is working on a report that examines learning opportunities in tribal libraries. We are looking for model programs that address literacy, adult learning, cultural preservation, language, afterschool programs, STEM, and other types of programs. The report is intended to develop a knowledge base of programs that can be easily replicated in all libraries. Let us hear from you if you have programs you would like to share.
