This morning (May 30th) Inspiring Ideas Ambassadors with our Outreach Services unit had some terrific interactions with the men and women at Siloam Mission. Outreach Services (learn more about us here) visits Siloam about 4 times each year to sign up people for Library memberships, replace Library cards and answer any questions folks may have about what the Library offers. The conversations are always great.
Today we heard a whole lot of ideas about how Winnipeg Public Library should focus its efforts. People were excited about the idea of more mobile services, had questions about the future of print books, were excited to learn about our new hoopla service and talked about wanting resources to learn more about Cree and Ojibway cultures. Like I said, the conversations are always great. Thank you to Siloam for continuing to host us and to our fellow community members who shared their dining room space with us this morning.
