Samish Library

The Samish Library has over 2,000 titles to choose from. Many of the books have been donated by local residents and tribal members. Topics include crafts, plants, lifestyle, religion, and all concern native life in one way or another. 

Collections focus mostly on the Northwest Coast, but we also have Plains, Southwest, and Woodlands. Thank you to Janis Bailey for graciously volunteering time to change the books over to the Dewey Decimal System.

If you get the chance, be sure to stop by. Books are checked out for a two-month period. If books are not returned in a timely manner, check-out privileges will be stopped until the books are returned or paid for.

If you are ever in need of information that you think may be found in the library, please contact us and we will do our best to help you.
