The West Kildonan Library was built in 1967. Improvements are required so the library can continue to meet the community’s needs into the future.

The City is assessing the building to understand what improvements are needed and how much they will cost. It will look at:

  • the site (including parking);
  • the building condition;
  • assessment of heritage elements;
  • building code and accessibility compliance; and
  • services and amenities.

    The City used feedback from stakeholders and a building assessment of the West Kildonan Library to come up with improvement options.

    The City developed three options so that the library can continue to meet the community’s needs into the future.

    • Option 1 includes improvements to meet building code and accessibility standards. The improvements will maintain existing programs and services.
    • Option 2 includes the improvements captured in Option 1 and a small addition, new tutorial rooms, and a children's reading playground. It will allow for some additional programs and services.
    • Option 3 the improvements captured in Option 1 and a large addition, new tutorial rooms, a meeting room, outdoor reading garden, and a relocated children's area. It will allow for additional programs and services.


    We want your feedback on the improvement options. What we hear from residents will help the City refine the proposed options.

    The City is starting a review of the West Kildonan Library. The review will help identify potential options for improvements and costs. Improvements at the West Kildonan Library are subject to Council approval and funding.

    Library user groups and groups who care about the library are an important part of this project. The review will include outreach to collect feedback from community stakeholders like local residents, neighborhood associations, and advocacy groups. These groups can expect to be contacted later in 2023.
