About Branch

The Halifax North Memorial Public Library is located in Halifax’s historic North End. A community-based library, its emphasis is on offering culturally diverse service, which includes carrying an extensive Black, First Nations, and multicultural collection. The branch’s Heinish Learning Centre houses a number of public access computers complete with Internet access and a variety of adult and children’s software. The Centre, which was funded through a generous donation from the Heinish Foundation, is available free of charge for group workshops and training sessions. The branch also lends Google Chromebooks, which can be used inside the library.

In the fall of 2004 the branch underwent significant renovations to provide many much-needed upgrades including new lighting, shelving, furniture, and carpeting. The grounds in front of the library were also revitalized courtesy of HRM’s Capital District. The new design provides an attractive, comfortable, and functional space for the community.

An Explosion Connection
In 1964, The Halifax City Regional Library Board received $100,000 from the Halifax Relief Commission to commemorate the tragedy of the 1917 Halifax Explosion. With city council's support, a library branch was built in memory of the 1,600 victims of the explosion.

Book Returns:
Materials from any branch can be returned 24 hours a day using our book drop.

There is parking available at the back of the library.
