Group of four children sitting on a library floor and reading booksA “Read In” will be taking place at MLA offices across the province on Friday, April 7. All residents of Saskatchewan who value their public library are encouraged to gather outside their MLA’s office and read a book. There are over 50 events happening across the province. Unless otherwise noted, all events are happening from 12 p.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The Saskatchewan Government has eliminated funding for public libraries in Regina and Saskatoon and has cut funding for regional libraries by $3.5 million.  CUPE is concerned about the impact this will have on libraries across the province and for the municipalities that suddenly have to plan for the downloading of services.

CUPE represents over 700 library workers across the province of Saskatchewan. We encourage members to attend an event near them.

If you can’t attend an event, please consider taking a photo of your own solo reading adventure. Please post photos on social media using #DearSK and @SaveSKlibraries or send the photos to tdonaldson@cupe.ca.
