Carnegie Library: Heritage At Risk

FROM CBC:

Winnipeg's Carnegie Library called one of Canada's most endangered historic sites


City of Winnipeg hasn't decided what to do with former city archives building


A Winnipeg library that is more than a century old and houses the city's archives has been named among the most endangered historic sites in Canada at a time when the future of the building hangs in limbo... read the full story


FROM National Trust for Canada:

Top Ten Endangered List



As of May 23, 2018, The National Trust for Canada launched the 2018 Top Ten Endangered List of historic buildings. This year, the former Carnegie Library and City of Winnipeg Archives is on the list.  The Carnegie Library, built in 1905 with a $75,000 grant from Andrew Carnegie, was severely damaged by a rainstorm in 2013 while undergoing renovations. Although a designated heritage building, its future is uncertain - express your support for the preservation of this building by emailing us at info@heritagewinnipeg.ca
