Poppies on display







April brings with it so much to look forward to and be grateful for – Youth Week, F.O.O.D Week, National Trust Heritage Festival, School Holidays and our Forbes Library makeover. Play our board games, Wii and GIANT SCRABBLE in the Library. It is also a time for remembrance with the ANZAC Day Public Holiday on 25 April.

** Forbes Library is temporarily closed for refurbishment until Monday 25 May **

What is the Poppy Project?

Inspired by the Victorian 5000 Poppies initiative, CWL staff and families started creating poppies some months ago. A few grew into a field and we decided to ask the community to help us make a poppy for every serviceman and woman from Orange and surrounding districts. Want to help? Download your Poppy Pack, hand make one or more knitted, crocheted, sewn or felted poppies and drop in to the library.
