Glenboro South Cypress Library

The Glenboro/South Cypress Library that you know today was first opened on May 27th, 1964 and was situated in the Glenboro Village Office as a branch of the Lakeland Regional Library.

On January 2, 1979, the Glenboro/South Cypress Library terminated its association with Lakeland Regional, and became a branch of the Western Manitoba Regional Library.

Another big change for the Glenboro/South Cypress Library was in the summer of 1987 which saw a 20 foot extension added to the building that we are housed in today, giving us a grand total of 1152 sq. ft.

The Western Manitoba Regional Library completed the term of its first ever Strategic Planning Document at the end of 2017; this document was a three year plan for the years 2014-2017.   Appointed to the position of Chief Librarian in the fall of 2012, I oversaw the development and execution of the strategic goals of this plan.

Libraries are not just books

Libraries Are Not JUST Books!
Did you know that the library has a lot more to offer you than just books? Don’t get me wrong books are amazing little bundles of paper that can transport you through time and space into different worlds with intriguing and wonderful characters; but that is not all that the library has!

Freedom to Read Week & New Contest

Freedom to Read Week & New Contest
February 25 to March 3 is Freedom to Read Week at the library. It is at this time that we encourage all Canadians to think about what it means to have the right to read whatever material we choose. Intellectual Freedom is something we should all be grateful for. 
Congratulations to the winner of the I Love to Read Month Crossword Puzzle!

Home Service

Are You Stuck at Home? Need Something to Read?
One service provided by the Glenboro/South Cypress Library that not many people know about is Home Visits. If you are a person who resides within the town of Glenboro and are unable to venture to the library, I am willing to bring library materials to you. All you need to do is give me a call at the library and answer a few questions pertaining to the types of material that you are looking for.

Canadian Library Month

Canadian Library Month
What do libraries mean to you? Would you believe that there are many who would argue that libraries serve no purpose at all? They believe that libraries should be done away with altogether, as they see them as a waste of money and resources that could be used somewhere else. To these individuals, libraries are seen as just a place that stores dusty old books.

Summer Programs

Hello Everyone!
Summer is upon us once again, which means that it is time for summer programming here at the library! This year we have a variety of clubs and contests for all ages. For the adults we have the Adult Summer Reading Club where participants are invited to submit reviews on the books they have read and will be eligible to win a prize! Reviews can be submitted to or at their local library branch.
