PARKES LIBRARY IS ON THE MOVE!
Parkes Library is going to pack up and move to Clarinda Street (next door to Discount Dave’s) for one year as the present library space undergoes extensive renovations and expansion. During July and August there will be some disruptions to programs and service as the staff pack up the collection and relocate, but we will try to minimise these as much as we can.
TO THE MOON AND BACK ART EXHIBITION
As part of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of Parkes’ role in the Apollo 11 moon landing mission, an exhibition of paintings by local teenagers will be displayed at the Cedar Café from July 19th. Come along for a coffee and see our amazing young artistic talent!
LOCAL BOOK LAUNCH
Tree Change: An Innocent’s Progress Dr Rick Newton moved with his wife Barbara Newton and their two children to Tullamore approximately 21 years ago. Rick was looking for a change from medical practice and to fulfil a life-long dream to raise cattle. Rick has recorded some humorous short stories from his and Barb’s experiences as fledgling
farmers. Helen Gray has thoroughly enjoyed illustrating the wonderful stories for the book. The book is dedicated to the memory of Geof Horsburgh and Geoff Williams. Books will be on sale and the original pen drawings are up for auction on the night to raise money for research into brain cancer and stroke prevention. Book Launch & Auction: Tuesday July 23 @ 6pm, at the Parkes Library.
