A New Library Comes to The Leech Lake Tribal College

The Leech Lake Tribal College has been awarded a federal grant to make a number of improvements to its campus. 8th District Congressman Jim Oberstar says the U.S. Department of Education will award the Leech Lake Tribal College $2,758,000 from its Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities Program.

"In the past five years, enrollment at Leech Lake Tribal College has nearly doubled",said Oberstar.

The grant will help pay for an expansion of the library, expand the college's office and administrative space and build additional space for special events and community meetings.

Leech Lake Tribal College President, Dr. Leah Carpenter, says the campus expansion is a good investment. "I am so excited the College will have this opportunity to provide our students with additional space to study, socialize and gather as a collegial community."
