Celebrating Progress on the Dartmouth North Renovation Project

Renovations are well underway to create an outdoor library at the Dartmouth North Public Library and Community Centre. This fresh space will combine all the benefits of a library—connection, learning, growth—with fresh air and active living. We've been engaging and celebrating progress with the community, as we go.

Groundbreaking Ceremony

On September 11, 2017, we officially turned the sod on our Exterior Renovation Project, thanks to the support of all partners at TD, ACOA, and Halifax Parks & Recreation.

Preview Picnic

On July 11, 2017, the Library and Parks & Recreation were happy to host an outdoor experience that hinted at the fun to come in our new and improved space. The picnic featured Roots & Drum Dance, a spoken word performance by Guyleigh Johnson, interactive fun with the Discovery Centre and Nova Scotia Nature Trust, plus delicious local food!

Community Show & Tell 

On May 17, 2017, the Library and Parks & Recreation were proud to host a community gathering to share conceptual plans for the space and celebrate the generous support of our donors.
