Saskatchewan Cancels Library Closure Plans

April 28, 2017


In wake of protests, Saskatchewan reconsiders library closings

In an earlier blog post, we brought you a story out of Saskatchewan, where declining use and tighter budgets led to a plan to cut funding for community and school libraries, a decision that would lead to many closures. However, a surprising tide of protest led to the provincial government to reconsider that decision.

 

Resistance to the cuts grew from the community level, particularly in many of Saskatchewan’s small towns, where library resources, and even Internet access, can be limited.

 

Protests included petitions, marches and “read-ins.” In response to the pressure the government has ordered a “review” of the cuts.
