On-Site & External
The website provides links to external resources that are available in Winnipeg and surrounding areas as well some of the fact booklets we have available at the Centre.
In addition, we maintain an on-site library at our Waverley location containing diverse resources.
CarMa Room Library
A Diverse and Varied Collection of Books
Our Library is available to all FGWRC members and clients and is open during regular office hours.
Our collection is diverse, varied and reflects our mission and vision to support women and their families to be safe, healthy, valued and empowered. Some of our categories are: trauma/abuse; relationships; health/wellness; children/youth/parenting; grief/loss; lesbian/bisexual/transgender; self esteem; spirituality; coping/personal growth & creativity. We also have a pretty good sized fiction section as well.
Please visit the Opportunities section of the Support Us page for more info on how to become a member , so you too can enjoy this great resource!
The library was made possible through the wonderful generosity of CarMa Events and the many donors who attended their annual Ladies Comedy Night in 2016 & 2017!
