Fascinated by the heritage of our region? Discover our rich collections, services, resources, facilities and special programs.
The communities of Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes and Orange have a rich and proud heritage. Each Branch Library holds a core collection relating to the history of their area.
Resources in the Local Studies collection are for use in the Library only and cannot be borrowed but there are often loan copies available of popular titles.
We’re gradually adding to our suite of on-line local studies resources. Take the time to explore them and visit often as we’re constantly adding to the content.
