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.
Then. . .
The Grassland Library owes its existence largely to the efforts of one very dedicated citizen. Brenda Hicks made it her mission to engage the community in a project to establish a library in the town of Hartney. The community responded wholeheartedly with support and generosity. research, enrolment of volunteers and petition led to the establishment of the Hartney Cameron Branch of the Western Manitoba Regional Library in 2006. Following the amalgamation of Hartney, Cameron and Whitewater in 2015, the branch’s name was changed to the Grassland Library to reflect its newly expanded service area. Membership is free to all Grassland residents.
