Limited Capacity seats available

Saskatchewan libraries have undertaken numerous initiatives to build stronger relationships with First Nation and Metis people to ensure libraries are more inclusive and receptive to the diverse information needs of Aboriginal peoples. This session will highlight two provincial committees and Regina Public Library programs, resources, services and strategies that foster quality Aboriginal library services. Such strategies include consultations with Aboriginal organizations and communities, professional development related to Aboriginal awareness, creating a welcoming atmosphere and culturally relevant programming. Many programming initiatives support the development of Aboriginal culture and languages, i.e. Saskatchewan Aboriginal Storytelling project, a province-wide initiative held annually in February.
