As of January 1, 2019, we will no longer send library notices via postal mail. (Mailed notices include alerts about holds, due dates, or fines.) This will save staff time and reduce waste - saving more than $18,000 annually. There are several free and easy ways to access your library account. Add an email address to receive email notices, check your account online, or call or visit your local library for assistance.

Louise Erdrich positions herself as a contemporary tribal storyteller with her interlocking tales of her Chippewa people and her German-American ancestors. From the tribe's struggle to survive ( Tracks ), to the Depression ( The Beet Queen ), to the mid-twentieth century ( Love Medicine ), to contemporary times ( The Bingo Palace, Tales of Burning Love, and The Antelope Wise ), Erdrich sympathetically, compassionately, and realistically renders a portrait of people striving to survive governmental bureaucracy, Catholic Church intrusion, and climatic severity.
