PARKES LIBRARY ON THE MOVE!
After 12 months in our temporary location on Clarinda Street, we are on the move back to the newly refurbished library in Bogan Street. We will be closed from 12th September and will reopen on Monday, 12th October. Before then come in and stock up on books, talking books, CDs and DVDs to see you through the month we are closed. We have increased the number of items you can borrow and extended all loans until 20th October. Our Peak Hill, Trundle and Tullamore branches will be open as normal. You can continue to access our online library with eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, movies and documentaries, Story Box Library, and lots more! If you’re not sure how come in or give us a call and we’ll help you.
