Help stop cuts to provincial libraries in our province!
The most recent Saskatchewan provincial budget brought in a 58% cut in grants to regional libraries and the end of provincial library funds for Regina and Saskatoon.
Our Education Minister Don Morgan was quoted as saying the government needed to move beyond “bricks and mortar libraries.” and that the people of Saskatchewan should focus on “electronic or alternate media.”
The Saskatchewan Library Association has provided ample evidence to counter the Education Minister's statements and show that libraries are still very much relevant and should not suffer such a savage cut to their funding. Budget Cut Misconceptions
