Lithgow Library is offering free training in the use of history research tools to coincide with the History Council of NSW’s History Week 2022 with the theme of “Hands-On History”.

The Library invite you to come along on Tuesday 6 September to one-hour sessions from 10:00am-11:00am or 11:00am12:00pm for “Hands-On” help with various history research tools including TROVE, the Lithgow Library catalogue and websites that are useful to genealogy and history searching.

The sessions are free, but bookings are essential as places are limited. For more information on the sessions or to find out more about researching local history contact the Lithgow Library on 6352 9100 or go to the library webpage,
