Halifax Central Library


The proposed Central Library will replace the aging Spring Garden Road Memorial Public Library, which is rapidly deteriorating and no longer able to deliver service efficiently and effectively. As a civic landmark, the proposed Central Library will be a source of pride and inspiration for all residents and a welcome addition to the streetscape.

Within the last decade there has been a resurgence of Central Library construction worldwide as a key ingredient of successful and livable cities. The cities of Vancouver, Montreal, Winnipeg, Phoenix, Seattle, Amsterdam, and Hong Kong are a few examples.
