TD Presents African Heritage Month at Halifax Public Libraries

“African Heritage Month gets better every year, which is a testament to our community’s commitment to collaborate and achieve success together,” says Åsa Kachan, Chief Librarian and CEO, Halifax Public Libraries. “Taking the time to honour the accomplishments of creative minds and community leaders is key to having a reflective, healthy society. We are grateful for TD’s continued support.” - Åsa Kachan, Chief Librarian and CEO of Halifax Public Libraries

"TD is thrilled to be collaborating with local community leaders, youth and Halifax Public Libraries to create a program rich with African Heritage and most importantly, one that reflects our community's aspirations for a culturally diverse celebration. At TD we are committed to enriching the lives of our communities, colleagues and customers, and nothing brings cultures and communities closer together than music, stories, art and dance. We invite everyone to join us in this community celebration." - Tara-Lynn Hughes, Senior Vice President TD Canada Trust – Atlantic Region
