Written by Sarah, staff member, Collection Development | Have you ever wondered how a book ends up on the shelf at your Library? We're taking you behind the scenes of our Collection Management Department to see how books are ordered, processed, and delivered. It's basically like an episode of How It's Made, Library Edition. Bonus: A reading list of our Collection team's favourite books of all time.
2018 marks the 25th anniversary of Mi’kmaq History Month and, in this spirit, we are pleased to share with you 25 works by Mi’kmaq authors and artists.
Imagine if everyone in our province read the same title. That is the aim of One Book Nova Scotia (1BNS), a province-wide community reading event for adults. Nova Scotians are invited to read, discuss and get excited about the same book. Learn more about the initiative and 2018's absorbing book selection: Annabel by Kathleen Winter.
Fall is here, and the reading is plentiful. Your busy summer has come to an end, and it is time to unwind with a good book. Library staff from our various branches have hand-picked a few favourites for you to enjoy this fall.
This year, we hosted a variety of events in honour of Halifax Pride 2018, ranging from lively events like RuPaul's Drag Race Trivia and Fabulous Fantastic Storytime with Rouge Fatale and the Ukulady, to reflective discussions and sharing sessions like Venus Envy's Reading Out Loud. As always, we were thrilled to be part of Halifax Pride's annual Pride Parade on July 21—and this year welcomed our new friend, Pixie the unicorn van. Read on, and view our gallery to take a look back at Pride 2018 with us.
Popsicles, swimming, and campfires top our list for July fun. So do these books we've handpicked specially for our TD Summer Reading Club readers.
