Celebrate African Heritage with Halifax Public Libraries
African Heritage Month is a time to learn about and celebrate one of the strongest and most vibrant cultures in our Canadian tapestry.
In partnership with our community, Halifax Public Libraries is excited to celebrate African Heritage throughout the month of February and year-round.
At the Library, we believe that celebrating and learning about culture benefits everyone and builds a stronger community. This year’s theme, “Passing the Torch”, focuses on celebrating and supporting the growth of individuals, businesses, and organizations in our African Nova Scotian community.
African Heritage Month 2017 at Halifax Public Libraries is made possible by the generosity of TD Bank Group.
