Small Arms Factory Display

Fri 9 December 2022, - Mon 9 January 2023,

Lithgow Library’s Local Studies section is holding a display of photographs from the Library collection along with memorabilia and books related to the Small Arms Factory.

Drop in to see the display and some of the different types of items that have been made by Small Arms Factory employees. In addition to guns and ammunition, they also made bottle openers, badges, and salt and pepper shakers. Some of these were official but others may have been what is colloquially known as foreigners.

The display is open until the end of December. While you are in the Library don’t forget to join up if you aren’t a member. Membership is free and is available to all residents of any age.  You can also find out about the great resources available for loan and the other services the Library provides.
