How Public Libraries are reinventing themselves for the 21st century...
Coding workshops - 3D printers - and books. Far from extinct, today's public library is about access to technology as much as to knowledge...
My library matters because...
The library offers many programs which are free to the public and the kids programs are excellent - Joan, Milestone.
I write my exams there for post-secondary. As a single mom I love the opportunity to go to the library to write while my child reads books - Brittany, Redvers.

THE SASKATCHEWAN LIBRARY TRUSTEES’ ASSOCIATION (SLTA) IS A VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATION OF LIBRARY TRUSTEES FROM ACROSS THE PROVINCE WHO HAVE JOINED TOGETHER IN THEIR DEDICATION TO HELP PROVIDE LIBRARY SERVICES THAT WILL MEET THE NEEDS OF SASKATCHEWAN PEOPLE AND THEREBY IMPROVE THEIR QUALITY OF LIFE.
SLTA was established in 1967, made its first annual brief to the Minister in 1968, and was incorporated under provincial law in 1969.
SLTA represents 2,500 trustees representing libraries throughout Saskatchewan, in northern hamlets, rural communities, as well as towns and cities. All persons in Saskatchewan may access the information in these libraries, in whatever media they are provided, without a user fee. Resource-sharing and co-operation are the fundamental strengths of what is called Saskatchewan’s “one province” library system – a system that is the envy of the country.
Municipal public libraries exist in Regina and Saskatoon. The seven regional library systems in southern Saskatchewan are Chinook, Lakeland, Palliser, Parkland, Southeast, Wapiti and Wheatland. The northern part of the province is served by the Pahksimon Nuye-áh Library.
