New Bill and Helen Norrie Library

As part of the Library Redevelopment Strategy, a new River Heights Library is planned to replace the existing facility. See the New Bill and Helen Norrie Library page for further information on the relocation and construction of the library. Watch the live feed and follow the construction of the library.


River Heights Library was originally opened in 1961 on land purchased from the Winnipeg School Board. It was the first of several libraries to be built by the City of Winnipeg in the 1960's. The 8,285 sq. ft. branch replaced the heavily used Waterloo-Corydon bookmobile stop.
