The Government of Manitoba continues to work work on a large update to province-wide cultural policies. The role of libraries in the cultural life of the province is part of this review.
The Government of Manitoba asked for input on Imagine Creative Manitoba! - its review of cultural policies, including those that affect your community and your public library. Public submissions were due June 30, 2018.
The Manitoba Library Association submitted a position statement answering the three questions specific to libraries. You can view the statement here.
You can learn more about all the services Manitoba libraries offer by taking a look at the Imagine. Creative Manitoba! discussion paper. (Hot tip: skip to page 68 for the libraries information.) Make sure to check the slide show on this page for quick facts we think everyone should know. Learn even more about libraries in Manitoba by visiting Your Libraries and Library Stories.
