What About Your Old Neighbors?

While we were closed during the pandemic, over 170 new titles were added to your Tribal libraries through grant funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). These books focus on the Tribes of the Southeast, the old neighbors of the Florida Seminoles, from the days before the Indian Removal Act of 1830 forced their emigration to “Indian Territory”.  A wide variety of historical and cultural topics are covered in these new books. There is sure to be something of interest to you. Remember over 170 different books!
