The May Hakongak Community Library and Cultural Centre was opened in May 2002 in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut. Honouring the legacy of local cultural advocate May Hakongak, the centre is a model of integrated learning that supports a public library, cultural program space, museum, art gallery and regional archives. 


Our facility provides Cambridge Bay residents with regular cultural programs, sewing and traditional tool making workshops, and a theatre for community-based documentary films.  A resident team of Elders works on site at the centre on a daily basis to help youth and community members develop traditional skills and language, and to oversee cultural program development and delivery.
