Round Prairie Branch
The Round Prairie branch is located near Preston Avenue and Hunter Road.
La Prairie Round (or Round Prairie) Métis were a community of buffalo hunters who established a wintering site near Dakota Whitecap in the late 1800's. In the 1920's and 30's many in the community were forced to migrate to Saskatoon in search of work, and by the 40's they had established a permanent and close knit community near the current site of the new SPL branch. They were forced by the Crown to relocate in the 1950's. To view SPL's Métis reading list, please click the link below:
The Whitecap Dakota First Nation and Saskatoon Public Schools have created a guide for a walking tour of the Stonebridge neighbourhood, where Round Prairie Library is located. The tour will help you explore the deep Indigenous histories of the area.
