At Winnipeg Public Library we see our role in this area as having three parts:
We do this by offering programs and collecting materials that showcase the knowledge and talents (historical and current) of First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples.
Winnipeg Public Library staff work to support peoples' information needs - whether by helping with a research paper, picking out a great book for a child, offering free programs for fun and learning, helping people get to know the city or assisting in any other way we can.
We do this through collections, programs and virtual services.
