Jerilderie Library Murrumbidgee Council
The Jerilderie Library building was opened on 15 April 2009 and has a combination of historic and modern influences. The building is a replica to the original “Banksi” which once stood at the site. Some of the material was recycled from the original building, including a front window, doors, a mantel piece and ceiling rose which is a feature in the “Banksi” room, named after the original building.
The construction of the new library also included engaging local Artist Helene Mortlock to design two glass panels to display as you walk into the library. The panels illustrate some of Jerilderie’s rich history and also present day and include photographs as well as Helene’s artistic drawing. The panels can be viewed during normal library opening hours.
