New Transcona Library opens its doors

The opening of the new library took place on Thursday.

Now, a new chapter begins in the history of the Winnipeg libraries. The construction of this library was included in the five-year plan for updating the libraries in the city. The new library is at Transcona Boulevard and Plessis Road.

Transcona Library has spaces for meeting and study, areas for children and even an outdoor reading deck and garden.

"Libraries are a vital part of building healthy and thriving communities," said Mayor Brian Bowman. "Over the last several years, council has approved significant investments in rebuilding libraries across Winnipeg, and it's exciting that today we get to open the new Transcona library, providing an updated and accessible facility for people to meet, learn, and grow."

The library has tens of thousands of books, films and musical items. The construction of the library was approved in 2013.

The Cornish Library on West Gate and the St. John's Library on Salter Street are also in the five-year plan for updating and are closed at the moment.
