The mission of Bear River Band Library is to provide a cultural and resourceful environment for tribal members of all ages. It seeks to be a community center for learning with a common goal of enriching the mind, body, and soul by developing and maintaining a collection of materials relating to local tribal cultures and histories as well as containing materials to enhance both health awareness and educational opportunities. It aims to be the entry point for information needs through an interactive webpage.
The 925-square-foot room has a wide collection of books, DVDs, magazines, audio books, four touch screen computers and more.
With the increased space, larger collection, and new technology, Bear River Band Library has been able to live up to its mission statement of providing a cultural and resourceful environment for all tribal members from childhood to adulthood. The library now offers a great amount of cultural resource material and new computers that grant patrons access to the internet which enables them to research various topics for school or take online classes. By purchasing books and other material, patrons can easily find ways to eat healthy and be active, which promotes healthy living for themselves and their families. Since Bear River Band Library serves a rural tribal community, it is often the only source of cultural materials and internet access that is available, thus making it a vital part of the tribe as a whole.
