Keshen Goodman Outdoor Library

CA Keshen Goodman Outdoor Library

The Keshen Goodman Outdoor Library boasts new landscaping in addition to a series of new outdoor rooms, including “pencil” hammocks, a café patio, and an outdoor stage. The new resident mascot, gnome sculpture, was named Jerome the Gnome by a young Keshen Goodman Outdoor Library friend, Abby, who won the honour in a naming contest.

Outdoor libraries - a place to connect, learn and relax

The outdoor spaces at the Keshen Goodman Outdoor Library are an excellent example of the essential part of the library experience in the 21-st century. The Keshen Goodman Outdoor Library improvements service all the programming that Halifax Public Libraries is initiating with its outdoor library mandate.
