Libraries in Winnipeg have a long rich history, and St. Boniface Library is among the longest. Established in 1911 as a parish library the branch is sometimes known as the library born in a church. Today, the library is the largest branch outside of the Millennium Library. A true gateway into St. Boniface, the library is one of Western Canada’s hidden gems, housing one of the best French language resources east of Quebec.
Owing to its parish heritage the branch holds a unique collection of genealogical materials such as parish registries, marriage certificates, and baptismal certificates. The St. Boniface Library plays a central role in the French language services offered by Winnipeg Public Library. The library circulates a large French fiction collection and offers service and programs in French.
