Winnipeg, MB – Cornish Library (20 West Gate) is closed due to a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system failure.
It’s anticipated that the library branch will remain closed until at least spring 2022, as it’s expected to take several months to receive a replacement unit due to pandemic-related supply issues.
Library users are advised that materials placed on hold can be picked up at Harvey Smith Library (999 Sargent Ave.) beginning Friday, January 21, 2022. Materials that are currently checked out can be returned at any library branch.

Residents can view the progress of our snow clearing operations by consulting our Snow Clearing Status Map.
If a residential street was not cleared as scheduled, it will be cleared after plowing has been completed city-wide. Residents are advised to contact 311 following the completion of the residential plowing operation to report a missed street. Residents can also report the location using the quick and convenient online form, which provides us with all the information needed to process a service request.
When a residential street is scheduled for snow clearing, residents are urged to find an alternate place to park such as an off-street driveway or parking lot, or a nearby street that has already been cleared. This helps the plowing operation run smoothly and will prevent you from possibly being ticketed and towed.
Vehicles parked in violation of the Residential Parking Ban may receive a $200 ticket ($150 if paid early), and may be towed to a nearby street that is not scheduled to be plowed, or has already been cleared. If you believe your vehicle may have been towed due to the Residential Parking Ban, please contact 311 for assistance in locating it.
