Provincial Library and Literacy Office
The Provincial Library is entrusted, through The Public Libraries Act, 1996, to coordinate the province-wide public library system. It fulfils this role by developing province-wide library policies, maintaining an electronic library information network, co-ordinating resource sharing activities, and providing cost-effective centralized services.
Provincial Library also administers The Libraries Co-operation Act, which establishes the Multitype Library Board. The purpose of the Board is to facilitate co-operation among all types of libraries in the province, including public, academic, school and special libraries working together to enhance library services for all Saskatchewan people. Provincial Library provides secretariat support to the Multitype Library Board.
In a knowledge-based society it is in the public interest for all residents to have access to library information. New technology is being used to provide increased access to library information and materials across Saskatchewan in ways that were never before possible:
