Closed for the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
On Thursday, September 30, all locations and services, including Library Take-Out, at Colchester-East Hants Public Library will be closed for the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation holiday.
Check out the location page for your local library to plan your next visit.
The Province of Nova Scotia has designated public libraries as an essential service. Proof of vaccination will NOT be required to enter our spaces when the Province moves to Phase 5. Other health measures and protocols will still apply.
We are proud to assist patrons in downloading, saving, printing, and laminating their vaccine cards.
When does Proof of Full Vaccination start?
The province requires proof of full vaccination to enter designated “non-essential” locates on October 4, 2021. For the purpose of certification, fully vaccinated means 14 days after the second dose.
Who needs one?
Everyone 12 and older will need a vaccine card for designated “non-essential” locales. Those under 12 can enter with a fully vaccinated adult. There will be medical exemptions, which the Province will explain in coming weeks.
How do I get my vaccine card?
You will need to get a record of your vaccination, which can be accessed by sending an email or text through a government portal (you’ll need your health card number), or by calling 1-833-797-7772.
Can the Library help me?
Absolutely, we can! We can guide you over the phone, or help you through the entire process at your local branch. We even offer lamination services.
Do I need to make an appointment?
No appointment is required. Check out our open hours.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
Yes. Remember to bring your:
- Health card
- Email address
- Email password
How much does printing cost?
We are proud to provide this service for FREE. We also offer lamination at no cost (while supplies last.)
