The Best of Friends Gift Shop is a volunteer-run shop nestled in downtown Winnipeg. It is operated by the volunteer charitable organization Friends of the Winnipeg Public Library, and all net proceeds go directly back into the local Winnipeg libraries. You will find an abundance of lovely products including art mugs, accessories, stationery, greeting cards, giftware, and previously loved books.
The Friends of the Winnipeg Public Library is an important partner of the Winnipeg Public Library. The Friends believe in the value of literacy and learning and are committed to supporting all 20 local branches with their service to the community. Shopping at the gift shop and supporting our organization allows us to provide funding for amazing programs and projects at the libraries – like the annual Writer-in-Residence, Spring Break children’s programming, literacy playgrounds, and much more!
