I visited the library for my first time with my little girl, I was very impressed and she was thrilled to be there! It is great to be able to go and do research and read all style! My little girl loved all that there was to do there and especially the electronics of course. However I need to keep a balance, some book reading and some electronics.🤓
Staff was also very friendly and helpful.

Go to the library, find a book and relax in the beautiful surroundings. The building is beautiful on the outside. When you enter the modern beauty mixed with the old charm is a delight.

This is an awesome building, modern and historic combined. There is a good selection of books and you can place an order to have any book in a NS library brought in. This can be done onsite or online from home.
I like the reminder system. As you get close to your date of return, an email is sent to you listing the outstanding books you have.
Staff are very friendly and helpful.
Parking can sometimes be an issue, as it is in the centre of town. They do have parking on both sides of the library with handicapped spots.
What I like best in the winter is that you can drive up to a return and in a short hop, get your books back without needing to go inside.

This Library has it all.. It is converted college from the late 1800's which has been lovingly restored to its full glory .. Two stories each with 20 foot ceilings.. (approx. ).. old brick passageways ,, a complete makers lab with 3d printing available.

The kids section is amazing with cubby holes in walls so kids can climb right in to the wall to read.. Wide selection of books , audio books and also great study rooms and conference rooms

I had been looking for a book and tried this library and they sent out a message to see if any other library had it. It was a Brenda Novak novel called "Hello Again" and I only had to wait 2 weeks for it to be in my hands. What great service.

I use the Overdrive App to access this Library online from my Android devices. It's great because I don't even have to go in to borrow books. I do go to the renovated library occasionally and the staff are friendly and helpful.

If you’re in Truro, definitely take stroll through the new library. Beautiful architecture, where existing historic features center pieces meet modern design.

Staff were there to help, and made a conscious effort to find any books we were looking for.

Public computers are available, along with kids rooms, and quiet study rooms.

A big step in the right direction for Truro. A well needed upgrade.

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.
