Since the very beginning, it has played a leading role in most public spirited and cultural activities among the Icelandic people in Canada and the United States of America.

In 2009 the Icelandic National League of North America celebrated its 90th Anniversary. To celebrate this occasion, the INL has published its history. This is an easy-to-read overview of the formation and activities of the INL. The book starts with an Introduction to the INL and then the formation of the organization in 1919. It tells about the people, early events, and then reviews our membership, bylaws, conventions, and projects. It gives a brief history of each of the member Clubs and the monuments that celebrate our ancestors and heritage.
We think that this should be enjoyable reading for you, your family and anyone who may have an interest in things Icelandic. This inexpensive book (only $5.00) will make an important addition to your book shelf. It would make a good gift for members of your family or your friends.
