Library Program

Outreach and community engagement - Joint Program by Saint Mary’s University and the Halifax Public Libraries

For over forty years, Saint Mary’s University and the Halifax Public Libraries have worked together to offer courses at libraries across HRM. The courses are offered both as non-credit to Halifax Public Library patrons and for credit to registered Saint Mary’s University students.

We are happy to announce that both courses for the fall of 2022 are scheduled to be in-person at the Halifax Public Libraries Central Library. The courses will return to Paul O’Regan Hall.
Saint Mary’s University students must register for these courses using Self Service Banner and follow the syllabus regarding class requirements.

Patrons of the Halifax Public Libraries do not have to register to participate in the public hour of either course.
