Town of Vincent Library and Local History Centre

The Town of Vincent Local History Centre was opened in 2008, although the collection began in 2000, and is located within the library. The Library forms part of a complex with the Loftus Recreation Centre and the Loftus Community Centre, close to the Vincent Street intersection. The Local History Centre hours differ to the main library. Regular events are held in the Centre. Annual Local HIstory Awards are held in September.
