On this Day – Eltham Library opened


On August 17, 1971,  the Premier of Victoria -  The Hon. R. J. Hamer opened the original Eltham Library in Main Road Eltham.  The Library formed part of the Shire of Eltham Shire Offices building.

That building has since been demolished and Eltham’s current library building was built in 1994.

The photograph above shows Librarian - Miss Jean Truebridge and Cr. G. C. Dreverman with a copy of 'Pioneers and Painters' by Alan Marshall at the opening of the original Eltham Library on 17th August, 1971.

What are your memories of the old Eltham Library?
