Joint Meeting of SLTA and SLA Representatives

Michael Morrow, President of the Saskatchewan Library Trustees Association (SLTA), met with Amy Rankin, President, and Dorothea Warren, Executive Director, of the Saskatchewan Library Association (SLA) in early July to discuss strengthening the relationship between the organizations. There is a keen interest in working collaboratively to advance their mutual interests in library services.

SLTA is early in a process of revitalization and SLA has a focus on building relationships across the library community. The time is right for both organizations to work together wherever possible.

If you have suggestions for areas where you would like to see SLTA and SLA collaborate please contact either Michael Morrow at  m.morrow.town@sasktel.net or  Dorothea Warren at slaexdir@sasktel.net .

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, Saskatoon and Prince Albert. 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.
