According to reports, Nova Scotia-based libraries are applying new programming to attract visitors and boost attendance after in-person events declined.
“People are very keen on programming right now,” said Hannah Colville, manager of programming and community engagement for the Central Library with Halifax Public Libraries.
“Everyone’s had a hard time during COVID and I think they’re looking for some joy. They’re looking for learning as well,” the manager added.
Hannah further said that the Central Library has seen a resurgence in arts and culture programming in particular. Those include food demonstrations and live music events.
