The Dartmouth North Public Library and Community Centre has been the heart of its community since 1995. And now, it’s time for a breath of fresh air—in the first phase of our renovation project, we're building a new outdoor library and shared spaces to share, learn, and grow.
The concept of outdoor libraries is a new idea in Canada. Our vision for this space is for the Library to be able to spill into the community, providing all the regular benefits of a library—connection, learning, growth—combined with active living.
The transformation will include:
- Large, new windows and doors leading to a furnished outdoor library
- A new playground
- Fun spaces for outdoor Library & Recreation programs
- Free 24-hour WiFi—you can even use it outside even when the building is closed!
- Better walkways & improved accessibility
- New landscaping
