Eye-Catching Architecture

Opened in 2014, the flagship location of the Halifax Public Libraries is a triumph in contemporary design. Visually striking inside and out, the Central Library is a natural gathering place, and an exceptional event venue. If the cantilevered fifth storey doesn’t wow your guests from the outside, the crisscrossing staircases of the atrium definitely will once they’re inside.

You’ll feel as though you’re floating over the city in Halifax Living Room. Encased in glass with nearly 360-degree views, the space stretches out to meet Spring Garden Road and also includes a rooftop patio. The library’s award-winning open concept design creates an inspiring atmosphere perfect for collaboration and celebration.
