Saskatchewan Library Week – Libraries Transform

November 1, 2018

By Alan Kilpatrick

Saskatchewan Library Week (SLW), an annual province-wide event, is being celebrated this year from October 14-20, 2018.  SLW celebrates Saskatchewan’s diverse and varied library sector and promotes the many services that libraries provide.  The Saskatchewan Library Association, an organization dedicated to library development, has hosted SLW since 1976.

Saskatchewan is home to over 1200 libraries.  This includes public, school, academic, health, law, and government libraries.  They provide a multitude of dynamic and competitive services to Saskatchewan’s citizens, students, and professionals.  SLW is an opportunity for Saskatchewan’s libraries to stand up and push back against ongoing threats to the library sector.

As a staunch member of Saskatchewan’s library community, the Law Society of Saskatchewan Library proudly celebrates SLW.  Learn more about the innovative service, expertise, and potential the Law Society Library provides at the following links:
