The Mitchell Library Reading Room will be closed to the public on Monday 29 April. To access collections and services on this day, please visit the Governor Marie Bashir Reading Room.
Do you have any photos of when your library opened?
We would love you to share historical photographs of your library on our “Celebrating 75 years” Pinterest board.
We have set up a “Celebrating 75 years” board on Pinterest, which your library or council can pin to.
To do this you will need to follow the board, and then we will invite you to pin. We will be inviting NSW libraries, councils and individuals to pin.
You can tag the photos with #libraryact75th #nswpubliclibraries and your library or council tag.
Just to get you started, we have pinned a selection of photos of NSW public libraries form the 1940s-80s from the State Library Corporate Records.
Some of the photos were published in the Library Board (now the Library Council) annual reports. We don’t have a lot of information about the photos, so if you recognise any people or events or can date the photos please let us know – you can comment on the Pinterest board or use the “submit” function on this blog.
