History of the Annapolis Valley Regional Library

In 1937 the Government of Nova Scotia passed an Act to Provide for the Support of Regional Libraries and a survey was undertaken asking residents if they needed a public library in their community.  The recommendation was made to implement regional library service.  The Second World War stalled plans for library service, but after the war in 1947-1948 the survey was updated and work began on the long-awaited project to establish a regional library in the Annapolis Valley making it the first regional library system in Nova Scotia.
