We recently held an event in the Paul O'Regan Hall, which is a beautiful facility. It has comfortable seating and good audio visual equipment and acoustics. The food supplied by the cafe was delicious!

For bibliophiles a visit to a modern library built with many features but reportedly ran out of money to buy books so seeks donations of books from the public....

The design is based on a stack of books, which I couldn't figure out until after the fact. Light pours in from every direction. Every floor is a revelation with local research high lighted on one floor, media, studio on another, children's delights, cafes with exhibition space, and a rooftop garden. Plenty of space speaks to the future use as Halifax is definitely transitioning to upscale tastes.
