Online Chat with a Librarian

The librarian you chat with will not be from the Lummi Library, but will be available 24/7 to answer your reference questions and will have access to the library’s databases. 

Collections in the Library

  • Circulating collections: the library circulates materials of general interest and those that support the curriculum. There is a focus on Native American materials, particularly of the Pacific Northwest Coast, and with strengths in law, education, and art. Video materials include popular and educational titles. Young peoples’ collections include picture books, fiction, and nonfiction.
  • Non-circulating collections: The reference collection includes general and subject-specific titles such as encyclopedias and handbooks. Items of local interest which would be difficult to replace are housed in special collections. The Vine Deloria, Junior Collection houses the author’s personal library.

Electronic Collections

The library provides a number of electronic resources including databases, electronic books, and on-line versions of periodicals. Contact the library for logins and passwords.
