First Nation to get new library on reserve

The Snuneymuxw First Nation will soon have a new library.

 

The effort to place a portable trailer on the reserve to house a library is part of the Write to Read Project, an initiative of the Lt. Governor of British Columbia and the Government House Foundation.

 

To date, more than a dozen libraries housed in trailers have been established in First Nation communities across B.C. as part of the project, and at the request of the SFN, the local band should have one by the end of the year.

#act4teens: The Inclusive Library: More than a Diverse Collection: Part 1

The growing conversation surrounding the need for diversity in teen literature is wonderful—it is essential, it is long overdue, but it is only a starting point. Wait, what? Yes, a starting point. If we are not using those diverse collections in our library promotions, programming, and reader’s advisory with all students, we are diluting their influence. Furthermore, if diverse collections are housed in libraries that are not inclusive and welcoming to all youth, then we are negating the power of those collections.




Part 2 of blog is at: http://yalsa.ala.org/blog/2015/03/21/act4teens-the-inclusive-library-more-than-a-diverse-collection-part-2/

Books we recommend are ones written or illustrated by Native Americans or writers/illustrators of color. We want readers to become familiar with the names on the list and their creative work. As you'll see, not all the books are stories about Native Americans or People of Color, and some are ones in which characters are LGBTQIA or disabled.

Young Entrepreneurs are Ready to Sell their Maliseet Children's Book

Young Entrepreneurs are Ready to Sell their Maliseet Children's Book | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it


It’s been almost a year since JEDI first met some industrious First Nation students at George Street Middle School (GSMS) in Fredericton, NB. At that time, the students had started to write and illustrate a children’s book for the entrepreneurship program that GSMS participates in every year  through The Learning Partnership. 

Last week, the students celebrated the delivery of the first hard copies of their newly published book. The authors and illustrators of the book are Baillie Sacobie, Theo Polchies, Amber Solomon, and Brooke Sacobie, all from Kingsclear First Nation.

Their book, titled “Weyossisok” which means ‘little animals’ in the
Woolastooqiyik language, is an early childhood picture book written in both
Maliseet and English. The book features a few different animals that are
important to the Maliseet culture and includes short sentences on each
animal.

The copy, discovered more than a decade ago, has been restored and was screened in Texas this week, ahead of its commercial release later this year.
