SILT stands for Supporting Indigenous Libraries Today. It is a fund started in 2013 by GoodMinds.com, initially to raise money for the Six Nations Public Library, for their $15 million dollar new building and archives. We almost immediately realized that a huge need for a library existed in hundreds of Indigenous communities across Canada. More than 90% of Indigenous communities do not have any public library at all.
GoodMinds.com is donating 5% of Canadian public library sales to The SILT Fund and will do the same for all other sales upon request.
