Books Now Boarding


Meet the latest arrivals at the Airport

Halifax Public Libraries and Halifax Stanfield have partnered to offer our community members a new way to borrow books.

Where to find them

Pre-Security & Pre-Baggage Hall

There are 2 library kiosks inside Halifax Stanfield. One is located pre-security near Centre Court and the other kiosk is located across from La Cocina Mexicana, next to the escalators down to the baggage hall. Pick up a book to pass the time while you wait, or take it with you.

Using the kiosk is simple

Scan your library card and enter your PIN number. (Hint: Try the last 4 digits of your phone number)
The door to the kiosk will open like a book.
Browse the shelves for your next read. You can take books in and out, read the back, judge them by the covers (we all do it).
Once you’ve made your selection, simply close the door. The kiosk will take inventory of the books you have borrowed.
The kiosk will print a receipt for your records.
Enjoy your adventure!

Borrowing & Returning

Borrowing a book from the library kiosk is just like borrowing from a library branch. Books can be checked out for 3-week loan periods.

Return your books to any Halifax Public Libraries branch or community returns locations, including the one located in the baggage area of Halifax Stanfield.

You can also return any library books back to the kiosk. Just open the door and place them back inside.

Bon voyage!
