Mission Statement The Laguna Public Library is committed to serving the community of Laguna Pueblo as well as surrounding communities by providing access to quality information and resources that enhance and contribute to individual knowledge, enlightenment, and enjoyment through library materials, services and emerging technologies. Laguna Public Library recognizes a responsibility to provide a place for cultural learning and preservation of the Laguna culture and history; as well as creating a pleasant and safe environment for all to discover the value of libraries. Scope of Work Laguna Public Library serves the Pueblo of Laguna as well as surrounding communities. Our 2,800 sq. ft. facility provides traditional library services while utilizing emerging technologies to enhance opportunities for broader access to information resources. The library maintains regular hours of operation, including evening and weekend hours.

Other library resources include print, copy, fax, scanning, reference, programming, and inter-library loan services. The library maintains all of the above for all age groups and needs of the Laguna community. We are a public facility and welcome everyone to utilize the library and its resources. Collections The library has a collection of about 10,000 materials. This includes adult, children, and young adult fiction, non-fiction, and audio books; as well as reference and Large print books. We have a small collection of Native American Resources and a Laguna Pueblo Collection. Also available are DVDs and periodicals.

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.

Hello all, a while back, probably January, there was a box of DVDs out in the library entrance (where they put the freebies). I borrowed "Birth of the Dragon" and "Atomic Blonde" that day and saw the freebie box. During looking at what was in the box, I must have put those moves in with the freebies. Those two movies were not part of the box. If you have them please return them to the library asap Thank you Item Overdue The following items are overdue. Please return the items as soon as possible. ---------------------------------- Title: Birth of the dragon Due: 01/10/2019 Material Type: DVD Barcode: 4760027982 Cost: 23.00 ---------------------------------- Title: Atomic Blonde Due: 01/10/2019 Material Type: DVD Barcode: 4760027981 Cost: 23.00
Does Your Library Have a Library Telescope Program? A Library Telescope is a telescope owned by a library that can be borrowed just like a book. Usually it’s a modified Orion 4.5” StarBlast Reflector Telescope. What better way to bring astronomy to the youth of today, than to give them access to a quality telescope? Having a parent, or other adult, borrow the telescope and amaze a child with views of the Moon or a planet, could make a lasting impression. Maybe even lead to a career in astronomy or some other science. Hundreds of libraries across the US have Library Telescope Programs that have been remarkably successful. A library can get a telescope program going for under $400. The telescope is modified in various ways so it is less likely to be damaged and parts are less likely to be lost. The world would be a better place if every library had a Library Telescope Program! Shouldn’t your library have a Library Telescope Program? For more information see page: Library Telescopes.
Congrats to the Laguna Public LIbrary and its staff for a job well done! You all deserve it! 2017 International Guardians of Culture and Lifeways “Library Institutional Excellence” Award. The award recognizes a tribal library that profoundly demonstrates outstanding service to its community and has developed innovative and effective programs.
School Supplies Sponsorship UPDATE Over the night one of my wishes became true. Nikka Tom and family has generously matched my $100 to help another family in need. We are now able to do two students one from Laguna Elementary School (LES) and one from Laguna Middle School (LMS). Without our Community coming together this would not be possible. Thank You Nikka and family for you donation. I have updated the post so please take the time to read it again. Thank you all for the support and love. We do this for our future generation and leaders. Guu waa dzi hauba! I hope this reaches everyone in good health. My name is Tyler Wade. I am from Laguna and of the Parrot clan for my mother and a Sun child for my father. I have been wanting to do give back to the community in hopes that others will to do the same. For the beginning of the school year, Nikka Rae and I will be gifting a $100 each of our own money to help two families in need. The $200 will go towards the purchase of school supplies for one K-5 student attending Laguna Elementary School (LES), and one middle school student attending Laguna Middle School (LES). It is not much, but it is what we can offer. To be considered for sponsorship, the requirements are as follows: 1. Provide a brief summary from the parent and or nominating person on how this would help the family. 2. Preferably a low income family 3. A short video of the student stating: Name, Age, Grade, and what they want to be when they grow up. Speaking in Keres is always a plus even if just one or two words. Please try as best as you can in speaking Keres. 4. Submit grades halfway, and at end of the year. 5. Media contract to allow photos of student and family. 6. A pledge to respect the community, teachers, school, adults and learn the language as best they can. The selection process will involve motivational speaker and Hip Hop artist Nataanii Means and myself, Tyler Wade. We will look over the 6 requirements and pick the best candidate. Upon selection, we will notify the parent/guardian and student at a location to buy the supplies. I would like to reiterate and state that our gift is not under any tribal program. I am creating this entirely on my own. I hope to get a future program begun where one student from each school is sponsored with the communities help. Receipts of purchases will be made public due to the fact a donation $100 was received. Submissions can be sent to [email protected]. Deadline is Wednesday August 2nd, 2017 with the shopping date of Friday August 4th, 2017. Good Luck to everyone.
