The Library Circuit: The Akwesasne Library And Cultural Center

By Marcella O'Hanlon, NYSALB Trustee

Winter 2002 issue of Trustee

While in Hogansburg, New York, be sure to visit the Akwesasne Library and Cultural Center at 321 State Route 37.   This library straddles the border of New York and Canada and is very interesting as it is part of the St. Regis Mohawk Indian Reservation.  It has a collection of more than 28,000 books which have been selected to provide for the educational and entertainment needs of the concerned community of Native American people that wish to preserve their culture and fulfill the needs of future generations.  

The Native Collection is one of the largest in the northern New York area.  It has over 2,400 volumes containing information on Native people throughout the United States and Canada. Carol White is the director of the Akwesasne Cultural Center and Akwesasne Library.

Editorial Note: Please let us know if you would like to see your library featured in the Library Circuit. If you will let us know, we will try and schedule an article. We need only two items. Some brief background information about your library and a photograph. The photo can be of the exterior of the library or some interior section that you feel is important to the article.
