Recognizing that 90% of our First Nations communities have no public library, GoodMinds.com’s goal is to support, enhance, and expand library services to our communities. To achieve this goal, GoodMinds.com set up the Supporting Indigenous Libraries Today (SILT) Fund.

SchoolBOX partners with First Nations, Métis and Inuit youth leaders to ‘make education possible’ for kids in Indigenous communities across Canada, a territory with more than 634 First Nations and over 50 Indigenous languages.
The SchoolBOX North team had a GREAT day visiting Niisaachewan for the unboxing of a new shipment of books from GoodMinds.com and the installation of more shelves!
"When we opened the Learning Centre in Nisaachewan there was a mom who said 'I just never thought we could have something like this in our community'. The fact that families, kids & youth have access to books that reflect their families and cultures is so important for education and literacy but also for healing and cultural revitalization! Bernice, a community member of Nisaachewan and has helped bring this project to life, found it really hard to be able to get books for her kids who were avid-readers before they had a library. She had to drive back into the city after school before the library closed. Now she is trying to set up the NAN system to do inter-library loans to the Kenora Public library and provide advice and expertise to folks in the city—I think that’s pretty awesome!"
