"Saskatchewan Library Week (SLW) is a province-wide, annual event,
which promotes the wonderful resources and services that libraries have
to offer. Saskatchewan Library Week is celebrated throughout
Saskatchewan in all types of libraries, in both urban and rural
communities and by all age groups. The Saskatchewan Library Association
(SLA) has proudly presented this week long celebration since 1976. In
2016 the Saskatchewan Library Association marked the 40th anniversary of
sponsoring SLW.The theme this year is “Libraries Matter!”."
This excerpt from the Saskatchewan Library Association website
speaks to why this week has been dedicated to Saskatchewan libraries. This week, and every week, we thank our librarians for helping us discover new books and develop a love for reading!
