Our History

The Skawenni:io Tsi Iewennahnotahkhwa Kahnawake Library began as a grass-roots initiative in 2002, after a letter from 13-year-old Skawenniio Barnes appeared in The Eastern Door newspaper, in which her heartfelt words reminded us of the considerable value of public libraries and how the lack of this basic service is disadvantageous to a community, particularly for students like herself, who were studying and working towards a brighter future through education

Vision & Values

The letter sparked a movement to move forward and establish a temporary library to serve an immediate need, while laying the groundwork for the establishment of a permanent facility. Many people from Kahnawake and beyond responded – planning, fundraising, and collecting books – no small feat, as thousands of book donations poured in from a CBC Radio-sponsored book drive in Montreal. It has been a long journey, which has proven to be quite challenging, but inspiring as well.
