94 Calls to Action: Truth & Reconciliation

Halifax Public Libraries is sharing a year-long, system-wide (re)examination of the TRC's 94 Calls to Action. To increase access to this report and to promote its message, the Library will present each of the 94 Calls to Action on the media screens installed in Library branches and on its social media accounts. In those branches which do not have screens, small posters will be provided to promote branch displays of relevant Library material. The full 94 Calls to Action document can also be printed on-demand in any of our 14 branches at no cost.
