Pugwash Library to Close on December 5th

Starting on Monday December 5th, the Pugwash library will be temporarily closed as we move to our new location. 

While the library is closed, you can still access the book drop at our current location (10222 Durham Street).

Our Borrow By Mail service is available to any person who lives in Cumberland County. For more information, click below.

With your Same Page library card, you can visit any library branch in Nova Scotia (excluding Halifax) to check out some awesome books.

We will miss you while we’re closed. But we cannot wait to open our new Pugwash branch!

We Have Rapid Tests

Rapid testing kits are available at all of our branches.

Our website and social media pages will be updated when locations are out of rapid testing kits. Want to know when your local branch opens? Click below!
