Cobar Shire Library 60th Anniversary

November 14th 2019 marks the 60th anniversary of Cobar Shire library services and we are celebrating all year with the creation of a Library Honour roll of library volunteers, staff, and work experience students, a Library timeline, as well as a party and cake. There is a long history of libraries in Cobar, and a brief history of Cobar libraries (researched and written by Kay Stingemore, curator of the Cobar Information Centre and Museum) is available for download below. If you have a Library story to share, please contact Library staff.
