Each year during the month of February, Prince Albert Public Library, along with other libraries, schools, and communities across the province celebrate Saskatchewan Aboriginal Storytelling Month. Everyone is welcome to drop in and enjoy wonderful storytelling, music, or puppetry presented by a talented guest storyteller. The sharing of Indigenous, Métis, and Inuit stories promotes cross-cultural learning as we learn about these traditions, history, culture and language. If you are a teacher or school administrator and would like to register your class or school to attend one of the presentations, please Contact Us for more information.
