Memo to all Chinook Regional Library Patrons:
We are very pleased to announce that the Online, Province-Wide Library Catalogue has been restored as of May 1st. People from across the province once again have access to library materials from all over the Province.
On April 1st 2017, the Directors of Saskatchewan Information and Library Services (SILS) had to come to the difficult decision to suspend the “One Card, One Library” Services that they had provided to Saskatchewan Library patrons since 2009, in response to budgetary cuts.
With the restoration of provincial funding to libraries on April 24th, this decision has been revisited. Reciprocal borrowing and holds between Regional and Municipal Libraries have been reinstated. As of Monday, May 1st, all Chinook Library Patrons will be able to place holds on out-of –region materials once more.
We thank all of our patrons for their patience and support, and encourage you to make use of the restored reciprocal borrowing services.
