Boxes of books have arrived on the Wind River Indian Reservation! They’ve been purchased through the Wyoming State Library’s Central Acquisitions program as part of the state’s allocation of American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) funds received through the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Books are sent to the Fort Washakie School and Community Library. Head Librarian Robin Levin distributes them through a mobile book trailer. This project helps support literacy efforts during the pandemic in an area that has little access to electronic resources.
