Newcomers Information

Winnipeg Public Libraries

At the library, you and your family can:

  • Borrow books, magazines, DVDs, music, and more! Did you know that we have books in over 30 languages at Millennium Library? And we have dual language (bilingual) children's books too.
  • Read or study. We have space for you to study, or just to relax with a newspaper. Bring your family and read together!
  • Come to a program. English Conversation Groups help you improve your speaking and listening skills. Writing classes and other programs for Newcomers are offered occasionally. We also have concerts, computer workshops, and programs for children, teens, and families. There are many choices and they are all free. Ask library staff for more information.
  • Use a computer. We have internet computers and some computers with word processing. Or bring your laptop and use our wireless internet. It's free too!
  • Instructors: Outreach librarians are available to present to Newcomer/EAL classes, literacy classes, Seniors, and Aboriginal organisations promoting the use of the library. We will travel anywhere within Winnipeg to present on using the library, our collections and services, using our website, databases and special topics as suitable. For more information or to book (subject to availability), contact the Outreach Librarian at 986-6689.
  • Ask questions. Library staff will help you find the answers.

A library card is needed to take books and other material from the library. Library cards are free to all residents of Winnipeg. You can get one at any branch with proper identification that displays your current address. Parents or guardians of children and young adults 17 years and under must sign their children's library membership application.
