Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library

PARL logo


All newcomers are vital to the growth of our communities, whether you are from another province or another country. Working together, the Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library, the Pictou County Chamber of Commerce, and the Antigonish Chamber of Commerce, want you to stay and make this your home.

Currently we are working towards providing in-person information and help in each of our public libraries as one-stop Welcome Centres. Part of our commitment is to provide up to date and accurate information, which we are presenting online, here. In the meantime, drop in to a free local public library and speak to our staff.
