Our role

Collage of Indigenous peoples using the Library

Welcome to Winnipeg Public Library's information pages for First Nations, Métis and Inuit services.

At Winnipeg Public Library we see our role in this area as having three parts:

To celebrate

We work to celebrate the large and growing Aboriginal communities in Winnipeg.

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.

To serve

We are here to provide the information needed to serve the diverse interests and goals of First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples living in Winnipeg.

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.

To educate

We work to help educate the general public about First Nations, Métis and Inuit topics.

We do this through collections, programs and virtual services.
