Kyogle Council is rolling out street libraries in its villages, to promote literacy and reading in our communities whilst offering a service to visitors to the villages. The Woodenbong library was constructed by the Kyogle Men’s shed, who donated their time and materials to build this library which has been intricately painted by local Aboriginal artist, Ray Smith and each panel represents different aspects of the local landscape, wildlife and river systems. The Woodenbong Street Library was opened on 20th December 2020 by Mayor Danielle Mulholland, Christine Reid – President of the Woodenbong Progress Association, Artist Ray Smith, Graeme Reid and Jarrod Smith. This was a Council and community effort which has created a gorgeous street library open to locals and visitors alike.
The Woodenbong street library is located near the bus shelter outside the main town hall. It has been decorated by a local Aboriginal artist and features stained glass windows. It is stocked with a variety of books across all genres, including books largely found in rural Australian communities. Have your photo taken with the Yowie nearby!
Located at:Mt Lindesay Rd, Woodenbong, NSW Australia
