The Nambe Pueblo Health, Wellness, and Education Department Goal is to develop and implement community programs that will assist the community/tribal members of Nambe Pueblo to live a safer and healthier life through education, activities, and community involvement.

There are eight programs that make up the Health, Wellness, and Education Department: The Community Health Representative’s (CHR), Diabetes Prevention (SDPI), Wellness Center, Education, Tewa Language, Early Childhood, Library, and Youth.

The library hosts a monthly Family Literacy Night.  Family Literacy Night includes children and adults picking out a book of their choice from a selection of books we have available for them.  We require 20 minutes of reading and then they can keep the book to take home to expend their home library.  After reading is concluded a homemade meal is provided along with an arts and crafts project to work everyone’s fine and gross motor skills.
