Letter to Minister of Education re SLTA brief

Last year in the Friends of the Regina Public Library’s submission to City Council regarding the Regina Public Library’s 2013 budget we stated that as our province expands and benefits from newcomers from around the world there is an increased demand for library resources in many languages and to some extent for programs such as literacy training. In addition we commented on the importance of the services related to Aboriginal culture and Aboriginal community members and the importance of Outreach services and other services supporting the use of the library’s materials by people with disabilities.

In the fall of 2013 the Saskatchewan Library Trustees Association presented a brief to the Minister of Education and highlighted the first two of these issues. 2013 Ministers Brief – SLTA

FRPL wrote a supporting letter to the Minister of Education supporting the SLTA request for increased funding for Saskatchewan libraries and additional resources for Aboriginal literacy and English as an Additional Language services, as well as for services related to persons with disabilities.
