Public Engagement on Public Libraries Survey
Between October and December 2018, the province undertook an engagement process with the northern, municipal and regional public library systems and key stakeholders. The meetings were led by Ministry of Education Legislative Secretary Terry Dennis and supported by a Panel composed of two Public Library Directors and the Provincial Librarian. The Panel report identified eight themes common to library systems and stakeholders, ranked by importance. An online public survey was conducted from January 10 to January 25, 2019. All public responses to the survey were reviewed to confirm that the public agreed with the themes identified. The online survey results, discussions with the public library sector and stakeholder groups, as well as written submissions, will inform the continuing discussion about public libraries in Saskatchewan.
