Your ability to access e-books is in jeopardy.

Find out how you can support the fight for equitable access.

Prepare for howling winds, creepy characters, ghostly ships, strange apparitions, and things that go “bump” in the night. Our 30th Annual Ghost Story Writing Contest, sponsored by the Helen Creighton Folklore Society, invites youth to enter their best spooky summer campfire story.
Halifax Public Libraries received very thoughtful feedback over the past few days on our response to The Radical Imagination Project's proposed film programs and the need for the Library to provide safe spaces in our community where all members, especially those who experience marginalization, can speak freely and openly about the issues that affect them. Where policing is concerned, this is particularly true for members of our Indigenous, African Nova Scotian, and LGBTQ+ communities. We acknowledge these concerns and the statistics related to likelihood of involvement in the justice system, and the power imbalance that many experience.
On Tuesday, June 25 from 5:00-6:30pm, please join the Halifax Regional Library Board as we celebrate 2018-19 achievements and honour our Board Impact Award recipients.
