Halifax Central Library Opening Day Schedule

December 13th: 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Halifax Central Library is opening on December 13th and the biggest party of the year is kicking off at 9:00 a.m. with an outdoor concert from The Town Heroes.

Central was made possible through the support of the community, so who better to cut the ribbon than members of the community? Be sure to arrive early and get your chance to make history and cut the ribbon to Halifax Central Library.

See you there!
