November marks National American Indian Heritage Month. During the month of November, join GPL in paying tribute to the rich ancestry and traditions of Native Americans by attending special programs and reading books about or written by Native Americans.

Land Acknowledgement

The Glenview Public Library is located on land that has been primarily inhabited by the Potawatomi, Ho-Chunk, and Sac and Fox nations. Other nations also consider this their traditional homeland, including the Kickapoo, Peoria, Myamia, and Očhéthi Šakówiŋ. This region has a long history as a trading center and migration route and was important for many different Native peoples. As a civic institution whose core values include inclusion and perpetual learning, we acknowledge their heritage and contributions, and we encourage everyone to learn more about the histories and cultures of all the Indigenous peoples who have called and continue to call this land home.
