Library and Learning Resources

The Library has been designated a Tribal Library by the Tribal government and, as such, serves the whole reservation population as the major resource/research center for students, faculty, community and professionals. As an academic library, the Library will provide services and support for all courses offered at Fort Peck Community College.

The Library collection includes over 10,000 titles and 123 periodicals with periodical support being added by an online database funded by the Montana State Legislature. The Library is automated and materials are as close as a keystroke. Interlibrary loan is provided by a statewide consortium, which has made World Cat available online. World Cat makes library holdings from all over the U.S. available to Fort Peck library patrons.

Anyone who resides on Fort Peck Reservation or is a student at FPCC can obtain a card at Fort Peck Tribal Library. Children under 18 must have signed permission from a parent or guardian to use the Fort Peck Tribal Library. The Library has received funding and support from various charitable, federal and state resources. The Library has competed for and received federal grants. These grants have assisted the Library in full automation and several collection development projects with other libraries on the reservation and statewide. All these resources, as well as material contributions from individuals and other organizations and a general fund budget continue to enhance the Library resources and service capabilities.
