New Charleswood Library Under Development!
The new Charleswood Library is now under development! We are hard at work planning for the new library which will be approximately 14,000 square feet (almost triple the current space). Features to watch out for is a family literacy playground in the children's area, a teen space, fireplace lounge area, more computers for public use, more study space, a tutorial room and a dedicated program room. There will be plenty of comfortable seating and tables and chairs for all ages. Charleswood Library staff is looking forward to offering a bigger and brighter space to library users and more programming opportunities for all ages. Detailed plans will be made available on this page and in the current Charleswood Library when they are finalized. The new Library, to be located at 6 - 4910 Roblin Boulevard (Charleswood Square), is expected to open in late January 2015.

The first Charleswood Library was opened in 1964 in Dieppe School. In 1966, the Library moved to the former muncipal building of the Rural Municipality of Charleswood after the new Municipal Office was built next door.
In 1976, Charleswood Library joined the Winnipeg Public Library system.
The latest expansion of the building was completed in 1983, bringing its size to the present 6,700 square feet.
