Libraries across Nova Scotia are launching a new program with the aims of creating a commemorative list. The Nova Scotia Library Association and 9 Regional libraries are working on “Libraries 150”, a project celebrating Nova Scotia’s writers and citizens, ideas and stories.
Cindy Lelliott is the president of the Library Association and works through the Eastern Counties Regional Library. She says the list of nominated books will be compiled into a list in the fall:
A similar list was compiled during Canada’s centennial anniversary in 1967. Lelliott encourages residents to nominate books from their areas, to add regional tastes to the list. People can nominate books until August the 12th on the website: https://www.150booksns.ca
