Eric Bennett is a long standing member of Woolgoolga community who talks us through the opening of Woolgoolga’s first public library and his family’s use of it. Eric also discusses a number of other buildings that the Woolgoolga Library has inhabited.
Lorraine Vass was the first professional librarian appointed at Coffs Harbour Library.
Once the bookmobile service was withdrawn, it was time to start thinking about a new library in Woolgoolga….a very small one!
The introduction of the bookmobile service in 1979 saw a number of outer lying areas in the Coffs region having a library service for the very first time!
