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!

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!
