Transcona opened its first library in 1958 to serve a population of 11,000. In 1961, a new library was on Victoria Ave. W and in 1975 the space was expanded to 8,574 sq. ft. A renovation in 1991 added an elevator. In 2017, work began on a new approximately 14,000 sq. ft. library. The new Transcona Library opened on March 7, 2019 and features an open and accessible floor plan, a family literacy playground in the Children's area, a living green wall, and an outdoor reading area and garden.
