The New Lisbon Memorial Library’s motivated Archivist, Trenton Streck-Havill, is on a treasure hunt and we hope our community is able to help!!

It is the mission of the Library to house a complete collection of yearbooks and annuals for the schools and colleges that have populated this city.  We have dozens of historical volumes that showcase the time and effort of bygone generations to preserve the history of New Lisbon, but the further back we go, the sparser the records become.

We are currently missing the following Wa Du Chuda yearbook years:  1930, 1932-35, 1937-46,  1993, and 2005.

Junco or Juno-Aire annuals we are missing:  any prior to 1947, and the 1961 Juno-Aire

If you or someone you know might have a copy of one, or more, of these yearbooks we would like to add its contents to the digital archive that will be made available to the public in the coming months.  We would also accept permanent donations of theses missing volumes, but require only temporary access to each volume long enough to scan its contents into our digital archive.

Thank you so much for your help!!

Round House

by: Louise Erdrich

 download (1)One Sunday in the Spring of 1988, a woman living on a reservation in North Dakota is attacked.  The details of the crime are slow to surface as Geraldine Coutts is traumatized and reluctant to relive or reveal what happened, either to the police or to her husband, Bazil, and thirteen year old son, Joe.  In one day, Joe’s life is irrevocably transformed.  He tries to heal his mother, but she will not leave her bed and slips into an abyss of solitude.  Increasingly alone, Joe finds himself thrust prematurely into an adult world for which he is ill prepared.  While his father, who is a tribal judge, endeavors to wrest justice from a situation that defies his efforts, Joe becomes frustrated with the official investigation and sets out with his trusted friends, Cappy, Zack, and Angus, to get some answers of his own.
