“Beautiful Library!”

Colchester - East Hants Public Library
Ranked #4 of 16 things to do in Truro
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 September 2017

A beautiful historic building renovated and now housing the Colchester-East Hants Public Library. Worth the visit just to see the building and the grounds outside (Civic Square) are lovely. A great place to take the kids on a warm sunny day, they can read a book and go outside to play on the grounds. Or visit the Farmers Market on Saturday...right next to the Library. Winter time hosts an outdoor skating ring.

The library in Truro is gorgeous. If you have kids & the weather is crappy, take them there. Very modern & cool with lots of fun spaces.

I was only in once because I am busy with work...but wow, what a place. So modern. So beautiful. The building itself is worth a picture. The library has many new things that were not available in the old one. I am sure they will attract a LOT more people.

I visited the new library for the first time this week. So interesting to see how the old "Normal College- teaching academy" was transitioned to become the regional library. Lots of space, computers, labs and of course books. A group was meeting in one of the spacious rooms playing some sort of game. There is a historical room, however mainly military history to look at. The facility is inviting, warm and staff are friendly and helpful. Notices on the billboard advertise upcoming sessions for a wide variety of subjects. The website shares a lot of information. Now that I made the effort to visit I will definitely return sooner.
Nice to see the civic square in front of the library has a public skating area for the community and could entertain persons with you, while you take in the library!
