The Oglala Lakota College Library, with its several branches, is the only community library for the entire Pine Ridge Reservation. Located in the beautiful but harsh Badlands of South Dakota, Pine Ridge has the lowest per capita income in the U.S. and not a single bookstore. The librarians are working hard to improve services for children--and you can help by
donating new books for them to borrow.
The books listed here are those requested by the library. You can purchase them from Greenlight Bookstore and they will be shipped to the library free of charge. (Please note the quantities needed for each title; quantities will be updated as books are purchased.)
This list is a collaboration with ReadThis, an all-volunteer group which brings
books to book-hungry public schools, libraries and social-service
organizations. Like us on Facebook at and check us out at www.readthisbook.us. New volunteers always welcome!

The best gift poetry can give is a clear view of the world through another's heart. Some give you a clear view through many hearts and, with that, many truths. This knockout debut gifts us again and again with the chance to discover the languages of legend, legacy, and the war of and for home. What can be learned here about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict rivals what I've learned from nearly any American newspaper. "What kind of woman goes searching and searching?" So begins the book. To search and search with ferocity and grace.
