Padley of the Pedestal – by Keith Painter

Book launch

We had a fantastic book launch and author talk on Friday afternoon at Lithgow Library. Keith Painter gave a very interesting presentation on the history of James Padley and his time in Lithgow in the early 1900’s.

Padley of the Pedestal will be available for borrowing from the Lithgow Library soon and is a must read for anyone with an interest in local history. The Library also received a significant donation of Padley family memorabilia from Jean Crook and her family which we are very excited to be able to explore and make available to the public as soon as possible.
