The Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas, a federally recognized Tribe
located in Livingston, Texas, is pleased to announce the support of Dr.
Loriene Roy for President of the American Library Association for
2007-2008. Dr. Loriene Roy has worked with the Tribe to develop
and grow the tribal library and expand its services. Through her
expertise and willingness she has offered assistance in refreshing the
library’s reference book collection and adding new titles including
graphic novels for teen readers. Through her work with the
Honoring Generations program she has helped to arrange a needs analysis
report for the library.
Through the continued work of Dr. Roy, the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe has
felt the need to apply for the first time for the Institute of Museum
and Library Service Enhancement Grant. The Enhancement Grant will
be used to develop a Technology Center to provide
computer/internet access to the Alabama-Coushatta community. The
Alabama-Coushatta Tribe also supports Dr. Roy’s continued work within
Native American communities throughout the nation, and her continued
devotion to strive for excellence in underserved populations.
Dr. Roy has become a valuable asset to Alabama-Coushatta Tribal Library
and we would like to wish her continued success in all endeavors in the
future. On Monday March 27, 2006 by general (unanimous) consent
the Alabama-Coushatta Tribal Council appreciates and supports Dr.
Loriene Roy for the President of the American Library Association for
