Millennium Library July Exhibit
Jennifer Sanderson is a Métis artist with a creative passion that acts as a healing force in her life. While completing her Bachelor of Science degree she used acrylic painting as a way to balance the rigidity of rules and logic with the freedom of creative expression. This colourful abstract exhibit is inspired by nature, light and local Aboriginal artists, but especially the gorgeous skies and the sense of wonder and joy they incite.

Looking for a comfy and welcoming space?
Check out the Aboriginal Reading-in-the-Round space at the Millennium Library. This space is great for hanging out with the family and it is also where a collection of Aboriginal Resources materials for children is kept (for Aboriginal Resources for teens at Millennium Library visit the Teen Central space on the first floor).
Oshki Annishinabe Nigaaniwak funded the special ceiling-mounted art found in the Aboriginal Reading-in-the-Round, which was designed by First Nations interior designer Destiny Seymour.
Download the hand-out about the Aboriginal Reading-in-the-Round, its history and all about Aboriginal Resources Collections for children.
Oshki Annishinabe Nigaaniwak also provided funding for art by First Nations artists at Millennium Library and St. John's Library.
These painting by artist Ted Oster can be found on the second floor of the Millennium Library.
Learning First Nation, Metis and Inuit languages
Oshki Annishinabe Nigaaniwak provided funds to increase the size of Winnipeg Public Library's First Nation, Metis and Inuit languages collection. These items are found in the Aboriginal Resources Collections. You can find books and audio resources either in or to help learn the following languages: Ojibwe, Cree, Michif, Dakota, Dene and Inuktitut. View this search of our catalogue to see one listing of these items.

Serving and Celebrating First Nations, Metis and Inuit Communities in Winnipeg
Winnipeg Public Library offers a number of programs and services with First Nation, Metis and Inuit peoples in mind. We are always working on something new: from special programs and events to writing workshops with Indigenous writers to great spaces like the Aboriginal Reading-in-the-Round at the Millennium Library and our Aboriginal Resources Collections (now at 5 Library locations around the city!).
To find out all of what we do, visit the Indigenous Services section of our website. You will find information about all of the above, plus some great online research guides to help with searching for First Nations, Metis or Inuit topics online (tip: this is a great place to start for homework assignments about these topics!).
