Sir William Stephenson Ideas Fair

4This past Saturday afternoon (June 7) an Ideas Fair was held at Sir William Stephenson library.  Though we’re collecting feedback from online surveys that people are filling out, Winnipeg Public Library is also holding Ideas Fairs to provide an opportunity for people to participate in 4 interactive activity stations which will help us plan for the future of Winnipeg Public Library!

Saturday’s event at Sir William Stephenson was a real success because the participants who came were extremely enthusiastic and keen.  We received m uch good feedback at this event which will definitely assist us in working on our five year plan for the library.  A few of the activities that participants engaged in were:

  • placing ‘tokens’ in containers to make decisions about how to allocate funds for collections
  • selecting favorite pictures of libraries from around the world

Even if you’ve already filled out an online survey, the Ideas Fairs provide you with a unique way to provide additional feedback.  Participants on Saturday seemed to enjoy moving through the 4 stations, and getting stickers in their passports as they completed each station.  Completed passports are then entered into a draw for prizes, including a gift basket and tickets to opening night of War Horse.  Children who participate at the children’s station are eligible to enter to win a children’s prize package and books.

Our next Ideas Fairs are at Millennium library on June 11 from 5-8 pm, and at Pembina Trail library on June 17 from 5-8 pm.  Come out and share your ideas, and enter the draw for great prizes!  Both events are drop-in, so no need to register.  Hope to see you at Millennium or Pembina Trail!
