Halifax’s love affair with the new downtown library appears to be far from over. Dominating this category yet again is Spring Garden Road’s instantly iconic community hub. Sure, the glass Rubik’s Cube aesthetic looks fantastic on the outside, but what really makes the library a great public space is the vibrant variety of activities and work happening on the inside. Students study, baristas brew, disruptors create and the public keeps showing up. The day we’re sick of the library is a day we don’t want to be living in Halifax.
