October is Local History Month


October is local history month at YPRL.
Explore the rich history of your local community, from conservation history to conversations on history, with talks and tours, stories and displays. Meet local historians with a passion to share the stories of our local community and learn how you can preserve and uncover yours.

This year we are participating in the RHSV local history week 18 – 25 October  with events including:
Tuesday 20 October Significant trees in Banyule at Watsonia Library
Tuesday 20 October Early Eltham Pioneers (in partnership with Eltham District Historical Society) at Eltham Library
Wednesday 21 October Mernda Mill Archaelogy at Mill Park Library
Be sure to check out what is happening throughout the month in your area.
