Nillumbik Local History

Yarra Plenty Regional Library has been awarded a Local History Grant from the Public Records Office for our application : Diamond Valley Local History Digitisation Project.
The grant will preserve and present the story of the Former Shire of Diamond Valley and we will digitise, catalogue and make accessible an online collection of historical photographs in partnership with Nillumbik Historical Society.

We are the only public library to receive a grant.

Congratulations also to St Andrews/Queenstown Historical Society who have also recieved a grant.
