Check it Out! Mobile Library Service… in your neighbourhood.
Do you know that Winnipeg Public Library comes right into your neighbourhood? Our Check it Out! mobile library service visits the Indian Family Centre on Selkirk Avenue twice a month. Sign up for your Winnipeg Public Library card and start borrowing on the spot. Check It Out! does not charge any late fees for items borrowed from our service.
Borrow from a large collection of books and magazines for all ages, including children’s books, great titles by and about First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples, books for newcomers, the latest titles for teens, graphic novels, adult upgrading books and more.
For individuals with vision challenges we are also able to provide access to a wide range of large type materials.
Drop in and stay for great games and activities that encourage literacy for all ages.
Indian Family Centre, 470 Selkirk Avenue on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month, 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. year round. Our next visits are: June 26th and July 10th **
