Awards Ceremony - March 14, 2019

The Prix Ronald-Duhamel - Ronald Duhamel Award was presented to the staff of the St. Boniface Library for their delivery of services, programming and resources to their clientele throughout Winnipeg, but particularly within St. Boniface and the Francophone community.

Over the last number of years, staff from the St. Boniface Library have been innovative, reaching out into the community to those who need it most, as attracting new users through engaging and creative programming. The library offers programs for all ages, year-round, focusing on programs in French on a range of topics that celebrate and encourage learning French language, literature and culture. All library programs are free to attend to ensure equal access for all. In fact, staff at the St. Boniface library delivers almost 200 programs in service to the community, many of which extend beyond the library's walls and are in partnership with community stakeholders and organizations.
