The Millennium Library turns 10 this week!
It’s hard to believe that 10 years ago Centennial library reopened its doors as the Millennium library and became the place we all know and love! So much has changed in the past 10 years and we’re excited to see what the next 10 have in store for not only Millennium library, but for ALL Winnipeg public libraries.
