    The Halifax North Memorial Public Library is located in Halifax’s historic North End. A community-based library, its particular 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, also offers presentation and other equipment and is available free of charge for group workshops and training sessions.

    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.
