A launch point for growth 

Whether we're connecting someone to an important piece of information or welcoming them to a free event, we know that individual growth becomes community growth. We embrace this opportunity and responsibility with pride.

As individuals create, innovate, and work with us, a lasting ripple effect is set into motion: a more literate society, social cohesion, informed decision making, improved employment prospects, and greater digital literacy. 

This shared vision unites all our staff. 

A resource for all

Our 14 locations connect the more than 400,000 residents of Halifax with our collection of 1 million items, and with each other through engaging activities, modern technologies, and vibrant spaces. 

All our libraries include a mosaic of cultures and voices representative of Halifax and beyond, and offer safe and welcoming environments that celebrate diversity.

Our blend of the best of traditional library services with innovative programs, spaces and technologies, attracts more than 3 million in-person visits each year. And, our libraries are more than just physical spaces. We're extending our services beyond our walls and into our community.

A place for you

Working with us is a great way to use your skills and experience to have a positive impact on your community.

Each day brings new rewards and challenges. And, we're looking for engaged, reflective, and responsive people to join our team.
