Due to circumstances beyond our control, the BCLS mobile app is experiencing compatibility issues with the library's catalog. You can still access your account and the BCLS catalog at baycountylibrary.org during this time, but the app will unfortunately not function properly until the developers find a solution. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Every year we recognize November as National Native American Heritage Month, which gives us the opportunity to recognize and celebrate the heritage, traditions and contributions of all native and indigenous people, who have enriched and shaped our country in so many invaluable ways. 

In celebration of this, check out some of the book lists we've curated below by native and indigenous authors, both fiction and non-fiction, books and audiobooks.  Collections of music and movies are also included, available to check out and/or download with your Bay County Library System library card from your favorite branch, Libby or hoopla!
