Over 1,000 Books Provided to State's Libraries by Foundation

Posted on 5/13/2016

Over 1,000 books have been shipped to hundreds of school and public libraries across North Dakota this past week by the Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation.

Three titles, previously published by the Foundation, were sponsored by donors including:

•     "A Free and Hardy Life: Theodore Roosevelt's Sojourn in the American West" by Clay Jenkinson, sponsored by Jim and Sandra Roers/Roers Construction
•     "Hunter's Log" poems by Timothy Murphy, sponsored by Starion Financial
•     "Sheheke: Mandan Indian Diplomat" by Tracy Potter, sponsored by Northern Plains Heritage Foundation

"Thanks to these generous donors, every middle school, high school, college and public library in North Dakota is receiving these books," says foundation president David Borlaug. "We appreciate this support in fulfilling our mission of ‘Celebrating History, Art, and Culture!'"

The books were published through the foundation's former Dakota Institute Press, which is now part of ND Parks & Recreation Department. The foundation continues to provide financial support for the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center and Fort Mandan at Washburn, now owned and operated by the state agency.
