Fort Garry Library is a 20th century library with a 21st century facelift. The current building, a shining example of modernist architecture, was built in 1960 by architect George Stewart. In 2014 the building underwent extensive renovations to reflect current needs, while preserving its modernist roots. A popular addition, especially among students, is a study bar that is complete with plug-ins for electronic devices. The branch also features new program rooms which are well used by local non-profit community groups. And no matter what the activity, patrons are able to access free Wi-Fi throughoutthe building.

The staff at Fort Garry are one of the libraries biggest resources. The varied expertise of each staff member has resulted in a myriad of programs available at the branch, including: a Knit Lit Book Club, a Cookbook Club, and a variety of children’s programming.
