4th Winnipeg Urbanist Meetup

The Winnipeg Urbanist Meetup is going to the library! We're partnering with the Winnipeg Public Library as part of their Inspiring Ideas forum to imagine new models for libraries in the 21st century!

Around the world, libraries are reinventing themselves and experimenting with new programs and services. From small-business incubators, tool lending programs, 3D printers, new-media labs, makerspaces and more.

What are your ideas for the Winnipeg Public Library?

Guest speakers and other details TBA.

    I have bomber tickets and won't be able to make it. As an FYI, it looks like Skullspace will be helping with some Winnipeg Library sessions.

    FYI on Thursday we will be meeting on the second floor of the Millennium Library, off to the (west) side where all the reading chairs and tables are located.

    Our next meetup is one week away! Our meetup will include a guided tour of the Millennium Library plaza by Monica Giesbrecht from HTFC Planning & Design and Tricia Wasney, Public Art manager with the Winnipeg Arts Council who will talk about the integration of public art in the park.

    Discussions and activities at the Meetup will centre around the following four ares:

    1. Collections: What collections and resources are important to you?
    2. Programs: How can library programs meet community needs?
    3. Space and Services: How can space and services be reinvented to meet community needs?
    4. Community and Social Opportunities: What role can the library play in creating opportunities for all Winnipeggers?

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
