Organization: Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College is a public tribal land-grant community college in Cloquet, Minnesota. Part of the Minnesota State system, Fond du Lac enrolls more than 2,700 students each year.

We asked Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, “What does the library mean to your organization or the creation of your work?”

“As a small, rural tribal and community college, libraries are important points of access to resources and knowledge. They are our partners in education.”
