Released on October 16, 2018The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed October 14-20 as Saskatchewan Library Week to celebrate the contribution libraries make in the lives of residents. This year’s theme is “Libraries Transform” as libraries can open a world of knowledge to their users.
“The Saskatchewan Library Association is proud to continue supporting Saskatchewan Library Week,” SLA President Alison Jantz said. “This year, libraries are celebrating this important week with exceptional programming and we congratulate the dedicated library workers for their contribution.”
Overall there are more than 20 events planned throughout the province to help celebrate Saskatchewan Library Week. Some of the events include a Book Spine Poetry contest put on by the SLA that uses the spines of library books to spell out poems.
Last year’s event attracted more than 1,000 entries. Another example is the Pahkisimon Nuye?áh Library System, which will host library readings and workshops with Zoey Roy in Buffalo Narrows, Île-à-la-Crosse and Beauval libraries. There is also a teen essay contest that asks the question: “How Has Your Library Transformed Your Life in Your Community?”
This contest is sponsored by the Saskatchewan Library Trustees’ Association. For more information about library week related programs and events, please visit https://saskla.ca/programs/slw.
