The Rosetown Centennial Library and the Wheatland Regional Library System are both celebrating their 50th anniversary this year.

The Rosetown library was created as a centennial project back in 1967 after the town voted on what they would like to see in their community. This is their 50th year at their current location.

Tina McGonigal, Rosetown Librarian said there's been some big changes to the library since it opened. 

"Seen it go from where you had to stamp a card to take out a book, and what is in your library was what you had, to now we are one card one province. So everybody that has a library card can go to any library within Saskatchewan and take out books and return them and they get back to where they're supposed to go."

Program the libraries are holding this year include, Story-time for Kids day, which they hold every second Saturday for kids around 2-8 years old. McGonigal says they are looking to raise funds to help go towards the cost of snack and crafts for the kids.  Tina told West Central Online the funds could also help the library get new books.

"If there's new books that we want to purchase that our region doesn't purchase for us, we can get them ourselves and different things like that."

A BBQ fundraiser will take place on Wednesday June 21st at the library from 11:30 to 1:30pm.
