What does the South West Reading Council do each year?

We need membership support so the SWRC can participate in the following activities:

  • Young Saskatchewan Writers’ Publication,
  • An international or national charitable project,
  • Saskatchewan Reading Conference,
  • Donate books to early learning centers to promote reading before children reach school,
  • Distribute school readiness kits for children preparing to enter school systems,
  • Support literacy events planned by individual schools for families and students.


The South West Reading Council is open to anyone having a professional interest in teaching literacy. Your membership will help to support programs in southwestern Saskatchewan.
