Did you know that the Law Society of Saskatchewan Library has over 16 library locations throughout the province?  Our main library branches are in the Regina and Saskatoon Queen’s Bench courthouses.  Rural library branches can be found in Queen’s Bench and Provincial courthouses and other office spaces throughout Saskatchewan.

Members of the Law Society can access our libraries at any time using their keys.  The keys are available from the local sheriff’s office.  The Saskatoon Queen’s Bench courthouse is currently closed for renovations.  During the closure, Law Society members have borrowing privileges at the University of Saskatchewan Law Library.

courthouseThe Law Society of Saskatchewan Library is committed to maintaining vibrant and relevant rural libraries that meet the legal information needs of our province’s rural law practitioners.   The Library’s staff makes frequent trips to rural branches throughout the summer months to carry out collection maintenance, to discard older items from the library, and to re-shelve newer items.  We will likely be coming to a rural library branch near you soon.

For example, library staff recently made a two day trip to the Melville Law Society Library, located in the Melville Provincial Building, to overhaul and improve the library collection.

Do you have a rural library branch in your community?  We encourage you to visit the branch and let us know your concerns.  Are there any new titles or resources you would like purchased for your library?  Please let us know if you would like us to make a trip to your rural library this summer by contacting 306-569-8020 or reference@lawsociety.sk.ca.
