The Government of Manitoba is working 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 gathered public input up to June 30th through a process called Imagine Creative Manitoba!. We anticipate a summary document from the Government this fall.
A big thanks to those who contributed. Whether you are a long-time library user, someone who occasionally drops in or someone who has been away for a while - your voice is needed.
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.
