Congratulations to the Menominee Public Library on being awarded a $149,889 Native American Library Services Enhancement Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services!
With this grant, the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin will create and self-publish a series of books to encourage fluency in and preserve the Menominee language. Library staff will work with a trained immersion teacher to create eight simple books, four picture books, and one book of short stories with phonetic pronunciation and English translation for juvenile readers. The book of short stories will consist of original content from the Menominee people, collected from two Kataes esehcekasiq (Let's Do Things Together) Family Program (KEFP) writer's workshops hosted by the library. The project will allow books to be purchased and made available to the library, families with infants attending the immersion rooms at the Menominee Tribal daycare, elementary children attending reservation schools, and families that participate in KEFP.
