Save the Westwood Library

The Community Services Department of the City of Winnipeg, as a measure to meet its operating budget targets, has proposed closing the Westwood Library, effective September 1, 2020. 

The Westwood Library is a valued and important part of our community.  The Westwood Library, among other things, provides access to information, literature, media, computers, culture, community outreach, programming and workshops.  These services enrich our community by fostering literacy, community connections and lifelong learning. 

Should the Westwood Library be closed, these services could not be replaced. The many benefits to individuals and the community that flow from these services would be lost.  The closure of the Westwood Library and the loss of the services it provides would negatively affect our community.
