Public libraries in Nova Scotia play an important role in delivering a wide range of lifelong learning materials and services. We know because Nova Scotians, just like you, make over 3 million visits to public libraries a year.
But we take public libraries for granted, that friend around the corner that is always there. The fact is that public libraries are supported by provincial, municipal, and community dollars. But the investment is well worth it. Public libraries employ over 800 professional staff in urban and rural parts of Nova Scotia. Public libraries are in 77 communities. There are also online libraries, mobile libraries, books by mail services, and satellite locations.
The Library Boards Association of Nova Scotia needs you, as friend and user of public libraries, to speak up and say Public Libraries are important to me, my family, and my community.
