Lectures and Concerts

Want a no-cost break from shopping?

The Downtown Library is more than just a building full of books. On Wednesdays, from September to March, their Reader Services Department is hosting a lecture series featuring teachers and researchers from the University of Winnipeg. On Thursdays the library is providing a showcase for Manitoba's musicians.

Their next lecture and concert features:

Dec. 2 - Prof. Pauline Pearson, UWinnipeg Psychology, talking about Visual Working Memory

Dec. 3 - Wuchu Manitoba Dragon & Lion Dance - expressing Chinese culture, legend, myth and elite skills through acrobatics and dance

Dec. 9 - Prof. Christopher Wiebe, UWinnipeg Chemistry, talking about The World through the Eyes of the Neutron

Dec. 10 - Come to the Cabaret - a variety ensemble led by chanteuse Meaghan Reimer

It's all free, but seating is limited. The events are from 12:10 - 12:50 PM, so bring your lunch and come early to the Carol Shields Auditorium.

The schedule is subject to change without notice. To confirm, or learn about future events call the Reader Services at 986-8386 or

Wondering what to do with the kids after the Big Day? Check out the Children's and Teen Programs at the Winnipeg Public Library. There's lots happening there, too.

Did I mention it's all free?

Have a great day. How can you miss - you're in Winnipeg!
