Osborne Library
625 Osborne Street Winnipeg, Manitoba R3L 2B3

The Osborne Library exists due to the drive and spirit of local residents. In 1937, at the request of local residents, the Osborne Library humbly came to life in a vacant classroom of Lord Roberts School. Today, the library is bustling and full of life as a part of the Fort Rouge Recreation and Leisure Centre. Always welcoming, the library still has close ties with the community.

The branch regularly displays the work of local artists including the work of children and people with Alzheimers. Being part of a recreation center the library also attracts a fitness minded cliental; as such books on yoga, Pilates, and other healthy living resources are high in demand. Osborne Library also offers a variety of programming including Story Time and Baby Rhyme Time. Osborne was also the first library to offer a Cookbook Club, which has since spread to other branches.
