Welcome to the Saskatchewan Library Association
The Saskatchewan Library Association (SLA) is a provincial, volunteer, non-profit, and charitable organization designed to further the development of library service in Saskatchewan and through libraries, the culture of the province.
SLA provides information, advocacy, awareness, education, membership benefits and cultural opportunities for library workers and the public at large through its general operations and programs.
SLA’s work and support reaches lands covered by Treaties 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, and 10, the traditional lands of the Cree, Dakota, Dene, Lakota, Nakota and Saulteaux peoples, and homeland of the Métis.
SLA provides professional development opportunities to its members through continuing education grants, the annual Saskatchewan Libraries Conference, and webinars throughout the year.
SLA gives a unified voice to Saskatchewan’s diverse library and information services community, and uses this voice to advocate on behalf of libraries and to raise awareness of the impact libraries have on our communities.
SLA puts on a wide range of programs, including One Book One Province and Saskatchewan Library Week. Our goal is to give you tools to help you reach your library community more effectively.
