Cultural Heritage Collection
The Cultural Heritage Collection at Marion Library is a growing collection of photographs, books and oral histories relating to the lives of local people and the Marion area.
We are excited to be helping to preserve and celebrate our history and culture.
Library staff and volunteers are working to make this collection easily available to our customers. In the meantime, you are welcome to contact our Local History Officer if you wish to access our resources.
The collection (for reference only) is located at the Park Holme branch of the Marion Library Service.
For further information, please contact the Local History Officer firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on (08) 8375 6745.
