During Library Closure:

Please note the following changes have been made to Library service during this closure:​​​

  • All branches of Halifax Public Libraries are closed until further notice. 
  • All in-person Library events have been cancelled until the end of August 2020, unless otherwise communicated. 
  • All loan periods for physical items (books, instruments, etc.) have been extended. Borrowers will have three weeks after reopening to return physical items currently on loan.
  • All fines accumulated during this period will be waived.​
  • All book drops will be closed during this time. Please hold on to your items until we have reopened. 
  • All income tax appointments are cancelled. The Library is working with the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program to determine if we can offer sessions at a later time.
  • All private room bookings are cancelled and will be refunded in full.
  • All holds previously placed on physical items will be honoured. They will be available for pick up one week after we reopen.
