Many Nations

Many Nations team logo


The Many Nations team's mission is to provide literacy outreach and establish ongoing partnerships with Native communities in Pima County.


Our goal is to engage in outreach events, programming support, and to increase the amount of Bookmobile stops in Native communities.


  1. We value partnerships with Native communities in Pima County.
  2. We value increased literacy of all types throughout Pima County.
  3. We value outreach that promotes the many resources that the Pima County Public Library offers.

Land Acknowledgement

The Pima County Public Library (PCPL) acknowledges the sovereignty of Native Nations and acknowledges the twenty-two federally recognized Indigenous tribes of the state of Arizona and those who inhabit Pima County. We honor the vast and often unrecognized contributions and sacrifices of Indigenous people and are conscious of the ongoing experience of inequality and political invisibility. In partnership with Native Nations, PCPL advocates for full access to its educational, informational and recreational resources.
