There is brand new library in downtown Halifax. It has a modern European style to it, having four floors and has a wonderful cafe on the top floor. Beside the café you are able to walk outside and have a view of the water front.

Looks like quite a solid building with an attractive lawn out the front. Worth a quick stop as you explore the immediate vicinity.

Friendly, helpful library staff. Sign up for daily wifi with ID. No A/C but they will be moving locations to an even better building in 2014. Great location.
