Resource Centre

CANADA'S LARGEST LENDING LIBRARY OF DANCE RELATED MATERIALS!

NEWS FROM THE RESOURCE CENTRE
Our association has been through many changes that will benefit our members and the public in general. For those who do not know, Dance Saskatchewan Inc. has a wonderful Resource Centre that holds a library and archive located in the Dance Saskatchewan Centre.

We have reviewed the Resource Centre Borrowing Policy based on the needs of our dance community;  ways in which the Dance Saskatchewan staff can serve you better, and ways to get more dance related materials from the Resource Centre into circulation. We are pleased that our Resource Catalog is now listed online (OPAC) for viewing.

The Resource Centre is open:

Mondays 9:00am to 4:30pm

Tuesdays 12:00pm to 4:30pm

Wednesdays 9:00am to 4:30pm

Thursdays 9:00am to 4:30pm
