.@SUMA_amplify Passes Resolution Supporting Increased Funding For #sask Libraries #skpoli #saveSKLibraries

Good to see that the organization comprised of urban municipalities across Saskatchewan passed a resolution at their recent convention calling for members to advocate for increased funding for public libraries.

Therefore be it resolved that the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association advocate the Government of Saskatchewan to adequately fund the public library system to keep pace with inflation, and ensure that both large and small community libraries can meet the programming and educational needs that are an integral part of library programming and services for their communities; and

Be it further resolved that the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association participate fully in any government review, advocating for improved services and adequate funding for the development of a long-term strategy for the future of Saskatchewan libraries that includes engaging the library community, municipalities, and the public to ensure support for our community library services, SILS, and programming for all ages and patrons regardless of socio-economic status.
