Runaway Slave Advertisements in the Maritimes
PARKING NOTE: Due to a Jets game, parking will be in demand and traffic will be busy. Please plan ahead by arriving early or taking public transit. Examining runaway slave advertisements from the Maritimes after the Loyalist influx gives us a window into the lives of individual slaves: who they were, where they lived, what work they did, personality traits and whether they secured freedom. With Dr. Harvey Amani Whitfield,associate professor of history at the University of Vermont.
For programs requiring registration - Public Program Registration Guidelines
All program rooms have a maximum capacity to ensure safety. We reserve the right to limit the number of program attendees.
An email address is required for public online self-registration. If you do not have an email address, you can register by calling the branch at the phone number provided, or by visiting any Winnipeg Public Library branch in person.
For Family programs, please only register the children who will be attending. Parents/Caregivers who will be attending with their children can be noted in the "Notes" field of the child's registration, but do not need to submit a registration of their own.
For programs with children ages 11 and younger, a parent or caregiver must remain in the library during the program.
If you are interested in registering more than 5 people for a program, please contact staff.
