CMN’s academic library building opened in 2008 and in 2012 was renamed by the College’s Board of Trustees in honor of S. Verna Fowler, Ph.D. Dr. Fowler, who was CMN’s founding President, served from 1992 until her retirement in 2016.


The Special Collections archive located in the facility provides a valuable scholarly resource, including originals or copies of unique documents and other records relating to tribal and regional history. Since merger with the public library in 2012, a youth area has been developed providing resources and engaging spaces for children and specialty programming.


The building displays a variety of original art and artifacts on Native themes in public areas and meeting rooms. Its foyer, with casual fireside seating and the student-operated Campus Grind Coffee Shop, is a popular destination on campus.
