Regina rallies in support of Saskatchewan Libraries

This past Saturday close to 200 people came out for a rally in support of Saskatchewan libraries in downtown Regina.

The latest Saskatchewan budget eliminated provincial funding for public libraries in Regina and Saskatoon and cut funding for regional libraries in half, or by $3.5 million.

Thousands of Saskatchewan residents have joined the campaign to support our libraries. Over 3000 people joined a Facebook page in just two days, and hundreds have been writing letters and contacting their MLAs.

The next opportunity for action is on April 7 at noon where Support Saskatchewan Libraries is organizing a province-wide “read-in” at MLA offices. Learn more here:
