Millennium Library resuming partial service Friday following fatal stabbing

Beginning on Friday, December 23, 2022, the Millennium Library will reopen for holds pickup and book returns says the City of Winnipeg.

The downtown library was closed following a fatal stabbing.

Officials say that patrons will not have access to enter the branch at this time as they undergo a comprehensive risk assessment and safety audit.

“Our libraries need to be welcoming places for all Winnipeggers, and that begins by ensuring the safety of staff and visitors,” said Mayor Scott Gillingham. “We also need to look at how changes at Millennium Library fit within the overall approach to improving downtown safety.”

The library’s lobby will remain open for skywalk and parkade access, and for members of the public to warm up in during periods of cold weather.
