National Medal for Museum & Library Service

National Medal for Museum and Library Service

Dedicated in 1992, the Kim Yerton Memorial Library is named for a tribal member who dedicated her career to the collection and preservation of records and artifacts central to Hupa culture. This library also houses the largest collection of Native American materials of any institution in the Humboldt County Library System, and takes its part in making sure traditions are kept alive, while a doorway to the wide world is kept open.

In 2007, Kim Yerton Memorial Library won a National Medal for Museum and Library Service, the nation’s highest honor for libraries and museums that help make their communities better places to live.

Hoopa Library is in the California of the Past history project.
