The Saskatchewan Library Association (SLA) is a province-wide, volunteer, charitable organization with a mandate to further the development of library service.  The vision of SLA is to support Saskatchewan library workers and libraries in the pursuit of excellent service of all.  The Association supports the activities of all Saskatchewan libraries including, school public, academic, and special libraries.

 In 2018 the Saskatchewan Libraries  Conference is being held at the Double Tree by Hilton in Regina Saskatchewan on Thursday May 3rd and Friday May 4th as part of a week-long convergence of national library leaders:

  • Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) Members Meeting – May 1st
  • Canadian Urban Libraries Council (CULC) Meeting – May 1st
  • Canadian Federation of Library Associations/ Fédération canadienne des associations de bibliothéques (CFLA-FCAB) National Forum – May 2nd
  • SLA Conference – May 3rd and 4th

The theme of the week, Libraries! Convergence Under Living Skies speaks to the opportunity for libraries of all types and from many places to work together to identify commonalities, share experiences, build on success and plan together for our shared future.

SLA along with all provincial, territorial, and regional library associations are members of CFLA-FCAB. Incorporated in May 2016, the Federation is a bilingual, non-profit corporation that serves as a consolidated, strong voice advocating for libraries nationally. For more information about the Federation (Everyone is welcome!) and the Forum go to: http://cfla-fcab.ca
