Our Library’s Mission

The mission of the library is to support the Northwest Indian College and the Lummi Community with research, informational, tribal, and recreational resources that enhance life-long learning.


  • 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, Jr. Special Collection houses the author’s personal library.


Computers with internet access, Microsoft Office software, and printing capacity are available to the college and community. There is also wireless access throughout the building.


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. 


Library Hours

The library is open 8-5 Monday-Friday.

Library staff is also available via phone and email and can provide curbside pick-up or postal delivery of library material.

Online resources are also available.

Vine Deloria, Jr.
Special Collection

Lummi Library is home to the personal library of Vine Deloria, Jr. The collection reflects the wide range of his intellectual curiosity: books by and about Indians; traditional academic subjects such as history, psychology, philosophy, law, theology, and anthropology; subjects not traditionally academic such as catastrophism, alternative history, and life after death; and much more.
