Help us Fill the Shelves
Our library system encompasses 20 branches and serves hundreds of thousands of library cardholders. Millions of books, reference volumes, audiobooks, e-books, CD-ROMs, magazines, videos, and multi-lingual materials are accessed every year. At the heart of the library system is the Millennium Library, situated downtown. It is the central branch and the administrative heart of the entire library, providing cataloging, processing, distribution, and other services. It is the busiest library in the city. Its collections support all the branches by providing new materials and efficient distribution, and provides the strong foundation of the entire Winnipeg Public Library service.
We’re calling on all library/ book lovers to help us buy more materials for our library – more history, more reference, more foreign language materials, more fiction, and more vivid, memorable stories to fill the shelves. Books in all of their many wonderful forms – CDs, audiobooks, videobooks, and other media. Our goal is to add $600,000 of books and materials to the library.
What is a library? A gateway to the future, a repository of knowledge. A place to learn and grow. A place to be amused, educated, captivated, and inspired. Your donation will help keep the Winnipeg Public Library at a level of excellence our community needs in order to flourish. By giving generously to the Winnipeg Library Foundation’s Fill the Shelves Fundraising Campaign you’re helping build the most important part of the library: books and materials, at the heart of the Public Library in Winnipeg.
