November is Native American Heritage month. Mimi Wheatwind has put together a great display of books for the occasion. Come by Tutt Library and check them out!
In addition to many print books, we also have e-books, films on DVD and streaming video, musical scores, CDs and streaming audio, and many databases and journals related to Native American heritage. Ask at the Research Desk for help locating them! Here are just a few:
