It isn’t even finished and already Halifax’s new central library is turning heads south of the border.
American news and television network CNN included the project in its list of 10 eye-popping new buildings of 2014.
Halifax’s new public library is the only North American project to have made the list, which was published on Thursday.
The $57-million central library project is intended to replace the Spring Garden Road Memorial Library, built more than 60 years ago. Its replacement — still under construction — will serve as the flagship location for the library system’s 14 branches, which services about 166,000 registered borrowers.
