The Bad River Public Tribal Library is located in Odanah in the Chief Blackbird Building, also known as the Administration Building. The library had previously moved to a log addition of the Heritage House in the summer of 1992. Packing up the books again was a lot of work! The library is a member of Northern Waters Library Service.
