July 2017 - Indigenous Services Update

Library Service started at Saddle Lake Cree Nation on May 26th of 2017. There have been just over 100 patrons who have signed up for a library card since opening day which seems like a remarkable success. The barriers to library access created by the “non-resident user fee” were removed in the fall of 2016, (this fee applied to people living on a First Nations Reserve or Metis Settlement, and made the cost of a library card $60 or more for those First Nations and Metis people) yet there is much work to be done in getting the word out and building relationships.

Library patrons can expect to see laptops available for public use on July 28 in Saddle Lake.
Library service is planned for Goodfish Lake (Whitefish Cree Nation) soon.
