Halifax Community College Library is an academic library. Its primary
purpose is to support our curriculum by providing print and non-print
materials for faculty, staff, and students. We are also a public library
providing materials and Internet access for the community. It is our
mission to support both our campus and community by encouraging
life-long learning. These skills include the abilities to locate,
evaluate, and apply information to daily living.
