Oscar Nemon sculpted this bronze statue honouring Sir Winston Churchill. The statue was unveiled on January 20, 1980 and is based on a photo of Churchill taken while he was walking in Halifax.
The front of the library on Spring Garden Road is a really happening place. At least it was the couple of times I walked past it. Chip trucks line the street on this block and there are benches and a long, stone fence just perfect for people perching all in front of the library along with a lot of green space. There always seemed to be lots of people hanging out there. I love to see a lot of people around a library. It makes me happy.
