S'Klallam Foundation

The Little Boston Library was one of the four buildings constructed as part of the House of Knowledge complex, a capital campaign coordinated by the Port Gamble S'Klallam Foundation. The new Library, housed on the Port Gamble S'Klallam Reservation, was dedicated on October 2, 2007.

Before the new facility opened, in 1998 the Little Boston Library received a Service Award for Excellence from the National Public Library Association. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Amenities include several computers and a meeting room, and choice pieces of S'Klallam and other Native American art.

The Little Boston Library is noted for having the largest selection of Native American books of all library branches of the Kitsap Regional Library.

The House of Knowledge complex, including the Little Boston Library, wouldn't have been built if it hadn't been for many, many volunteers and donors. Friends from Hansville and the communities that surround the reservation have been supportive of the library through volunteering and donations for many years now. They continue to donate library funds through the Greater Hansville Community Center and as individuals.

This year the Library is having a second automatic door installed. Some of the donated funds are directed to Summer Reading for our youth. Every summer each child is given an opportunity to sign up at the library. After reading 10 hours a free paperback book is awarded. National studies have shown that a child who reads 10 hours during the summer can maintain his or her reading skills so there is no catching up to do in September.

You're always welcome to come and visit the Little Boston Library!
