Welcome to the SSLAThe mission of the Saskatchewan School Library Association is to provide leadership for the development, promotion, and improvement in school libraries in order to enhance student learning.
The SSLA offers quality information, insights, and publications into issues pertaining to school libraries.
Thank you to all who participated in our Learning Event Series for 2017-2018!
Due to a diminished Executive presence, we will not be offering Learning Events for the 2018-2019 school year. We hope to be able to offer these online events again in the future. We encourage members to attend our Ruth Culham workshops in April, 2019.
Looking for ways to incorporate technology in your classroom, organize your professional materials, or connect with other educators or classrooms online? The SSLA Ed Tech Tools page provides a description of a variety of tools to assist you.
Organized by both title and category, each tool is presented with a brief description, suggestions for educational use, a tutorial video, and a few steps to help you get started.
The Medium, a digital publication of the Saskatchewan School Library Association, is designed to provide information of a professional development nature applicable to school library personnel.
While promoting a Saskatchewan voice, The Medium provides scholarly information and resources designed to engender literacy in the province and abroad. View the newest issue today!
Thank you to all who attended our April 11 and April 12 workshops with Ruth Culham. We were so pleased that you could share the day with us, and we look forward to seeing you at some of our future events.
Our Annual General Meeting for the 2017-2018 year will take place on Friday, April 12, immediately following our Ruth Culham workshop. The agenda and reports for the meeting are available here:
School libraries in Saskatchewan are in constant need of support and advocacy. Whether you are a teacher librarian, library technician, teacher, administrator, student, or parent, your efforts to keep school libraries funded and well-staffed benefit all students in our province!
To find out more about what you can do to help, check out our advocacy page.
Membership provides a stronger voice for advocacy and the provision of professional development for teacher-librarians and related interest groups. It also provides the opportunity to collectively learn, connect, and grow!
