Westwood Library attended the West Portage YMCA Wellness Fair on May 1st. Among the colouring tables, home safety demonstrations, and free loot bags, library staff spoke with 176 families about literacy, baby rhymes, library cards, and our upcoming Mother’s Day program! We even had our own comfy reading corner.
We also embraced the opportunity to talk to folks about any inspiring ideas they might want to share about the future for their library. These new young parents with their little human inspirations in tow have ideas aplenty and we were eager to hear all about it!
Welcome to our Inspiring Ideas website.
Winnipeg Public Library has embarked on an ambitious new strategic planning process to help shape the future of our public library service for the residents of Winnipeg.
Public libraries are operating in a period of great transformation. Libraries are reinventing their roles in the community to respond to the changing needs of library users. Digital material is becoming larger parts of our collections, programming is expanding to meet more diverse needs of the community, and our physical spaces are becoming more collaborative and accessible.
Our five-year Strategic Plan will help guide Winnipeg Public Library through that changing landscape of new library trends and ideas and ensure that the decisions we make are grounded in thoughts of the community.
Over the next couple months we will be asking for your help in that process.
What are your inspiring Ideas? Fill out our survey. Attend one of our public events. Spread the word about our process to your friends and family.
Whether you are currently a library user, or have yet to use the services of the library, we want to hear from you.
Get involved. Share your ideas and help shape the future of Winnipeg Public Library!
