Greetings The modern public library serves as a      community hub; a shared space outside of  work and home for people to learn, play,  connect and create. The library is for        everyone’s use and enjoyment, and          everyone has the right to equal treatment  and access to library facili es and services.   To help maintain a safe and welcoming      environment for all, the CEHPL Library Board  has introduced a new Library Code of      Conduct Policy governing the use of our  shared spaces. You can view this policy on  our website, or ask for a printed copy at the  Service Desk. On behalf of all of us here at  the library, I would like thank you for your  coopera on in suppor ng this environment.   Tiffany Tiffany Bartlett Chief Executive Officer Borrowing You may obtain a library card free of charge if you are a resident of Nova Scotia. To register as a borrower, go to the nearest library and present identification with your correct address. You can also initiate registration with our online registration form. It is important to notify the library when you change your address, so that correspondence can reach you. You must present your library card when borrowing because the barcode and number on the card are specific to you and will ensure the security and privacy of your records. Please note: It is not the responsibility of the Colchester-East Hants Public Library or its staff to exercise a supervisory or restrictive role in determining which library resources young persons may use or access.  Library collections are available to all library users without restriction.  Replacement borrower cards cost $2.00.  Maximum loan of 50 items systemwide (books, magazines, videos, etc.)  Loan period is three weeks, with the exception of high demand titles which may be borrowed for seven days.  Vacation loans for longer periods are also possible. Bookdrops are available in all branches for returning books when the library is closed. High demand titles may not be renewed. Other items on loan may be renewed if they are not on request nor have been declared lost. Items may be renewed by phone, in person or through your account on our website. Our Collection From a collection of more than 146,000 items, we lend books (regular and large print), paperbacks, DVD’s, CD’s, audiobooks, and magazines.
