Colchester-East Hants Public Library

“The Colchester-East Hants Public Library (CEHPL) is proudly celebrating 70 years of providing library service to the resident of Colchester-East Hants this September. Throughout its history, CEHPL has continued to innovate, collaborate, and evolve – reimagining the modern library to best serve the growing and changing needs of our communities.

To mark this important milestone, all branches will be participating in a fall Library Card registration campaign that will showcase both our communities and our libraries. Library staff are reaching out to local ‘celebrities’ to invite them to register for a library card and/or share what they love about their Library. These stories will be featured on branch social media pages throughout October, which is also Nova Scotia Library Month.

If you have a suggestion of a local celebrity library staff should reach out to, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by phone at 902 639-2481.

Want to register for a FREE library card? Call us at (902) 639-2481 or visit us online at: https://lovemylibrary.ca/library-card-registration-form/
