Read for Reconciliation Reading List
The Saskatoon community is coming together to respond to the Truth & Reconciliation Commission's Calls to Action.
How can you respond? #Read4Reconciliation
Check out one of our Indigenous-stickered items from any SPL branch, read it, then tell us about it on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using #Read4Reconciliation.
Don't have social media accounts? Use this webform to tell us what you're reading.
Our Read for Reconciliation list is a great starting point and our Two-Spirit, Queer & Trans Indigenous list highlights items from the Indigenous two-spirit community. However, our complete Indigenous collection has much more than what is included on these lists. Visit any of our branches or the Reconciliation Reading Room at the Frances Morrison Central Library to see much more of what we have to offer.
Download our reading lists below or pick one up at your nearest SPL location.
