German book ministry to close

September 21, 2023

Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Canada plans to close two bookstores connected with Die Mennonitische Post in Steinbach and Winkler, Manitoba, at the end of March 2024. Since the 1980s, MCC Canada has been promoting literacy and learning in Low German-speaking communities, publishing a popular German newspaper and selling German books. Changes in book sales have made the present model unsustainable, and today there are more options for accessing books. Die Mennonitische Post newspaper and Das Blatt magazine for children will continue.
