SPECIAL EVENT: The Juno Beach Centre invites you and your family to join us on Sunday, November 6, between 12:00 pm and 5:00 pm for an Open House marking the start of Remembrance Week. Explore Canada's role during the First and Second World Wars, and learn more about Halifax's history with displays hosted by local Halifax Regional Municipality museums.
The Halifax Central Library is the flagship library of the Halifax Public Libraries. The construction of this distinctive and modern building was approved in 2008 to replace the smaller Spring Garden Memorial Library. After an international design competition, the new structure was opened to the public in December 2014. Since it’s unveiling, almost a million people visit the library every year.
More than a library, the Central Library has become a gathering place for locals and tourists alike. Visitors get to enjoy a café, community rooms, an auditorium, and a dynamic and varied program of activities that appeal to people of all ages. The Central Library also plays an important role in commemorating the sacrifices made by Canadian soldiers during conflicts following the Korean War by displaying three Books of Remembrance in their local history room.
For information on public programs and activities, consult the library website at www.halifaxcentrallibrary.ca or contact the library directly at 902-490-5744.
From Vimy to Juno can be accessed by visitors during regular hours of operation.
