SUMA, Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association, has brought attention to the importance of funding libraries. As we know, libraries are much more than a collection of books. Among other things, libraries provide free access to reading material, free Internet connection and have programs for adults, teen and children. They bring communities together. Due to all this and more, SUMA is advocating for the government of Saskatchewan to adequately fund the public library system.
