Saskatchewan Library Week goes Oct. 14-20
Where can you borrow a book, read a newspaper or book online, learn to knit, study another language, find resources for newcomers or fill in a job application? The answer is simple, your local library!
Saskatchewan Library Week (SLW) is a province wide celebration of libraries of all types and sizes and the library workers who operate them. As the premiere program of the Saskatchewan Library Association (SLA), this week of festivities includes special programs province wide, north to south. For a list of activities please visit the SLA website.
"The Saskatchewan Library Association is proud to continue supporting Saskatchewan Library Week" said SLA President Alison Jantz. She continued "This year libraries are celebrating this important week with exceptional programming and we congratulate the dedicated library workers for their contribution."
Returning for the fifth year is the province-wide Book Spine Poetry Contest. Contestants create poetry using the titles written on the spines of physical books and stacking the books on top of one another! For more information please visit the website bookspinepoetrycontest.ca.
The Saskatchewan Library Association has proudly sponsored Saskatchewan Library Week (SLW) since 1976. This province-wide program, which occurs during the third week in October, unites people and libraries in an annual event intended to promote library services and create an awareness of the access to information for cultural, economic, educational, and recreational development that is available to everyone in Saskatchewan. SLW encourages literacy, brings communities together and brings cultural awareness to the forefront in Saskatchewan. In 2018 these goals are illustrated by our SLW theme Libraries Transform.
