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.
