This past Saturday over 150 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 3,000 people joined a Facebook page in just two days, and hundreds have been writing letters and contacting their MLAs.
The next opportunity for action in on April 7 at noon where Support Saskatchewan Libraries is organizing a province-wide read in at MLA offices. Learn more here.
