History

The first St. Vital Library operated from a small rented quarters near the junction of St. Mary's and St. Anne's roads. In 1961, the City of St. Vital sold the present site to the Library Board for one dollar. The library at its present location was opened in 1963, and was designed by architect George A. Stewart. The interior features a mezzanine, wood roof members, a natural wood deck and skylights. The library became accessible with the addition of an elevator in 2015.
