Saskatchewan Library History Project:
The objective of the Saskatchewan Library History Book Project was to publish a history of library service in Saskatchewan as a Centennial tribute to Saskatchewan Libraries.
Don Kerr, a well-known writer and teacher at the University of Saskatchewan, was engaged to prepare the manuscript and the book, A Book in Every Hand: Public Libraries in Saskatchewan, has now been published. It's a fascinating account of the challenges and triumphs, the personalities and the issues involved in the development of Saskatchewan's public library system.
Beginning with the early development of community book collections and ending with the present province-wide public library systems, it is a story of harmony and co-operation unequaled in North America, a story worthy of documentation. Don utilizes public meeting accounts, official reports, interviews, and personal experience to document the struggles, the triumphs and the challenges.
Coteau Books published the completed manuscript.
