Books for St. Bonaventure Mission Indian School

Our recent round of library assessments concluded with a visit to the St. Bonaventure Mission Indian School, which is located on the eastern edge of the Navajo Nation in Thoreau, New Mexico. We brought with us a box of books with various titles that they had requested.

The school was founded in 1974 by Bishop Hastrich, bishop of the Diocese of Gallup, New Mexico. Thoreau is a desperately poor town, and all the school’s 200 students attend completely tuition-free.
