Hobby's Reach Lending Library

Our library has over 4,000 items. The emphasis of the collection is on the history of the Blue Mountains. However, in the early years, the Blue Mountains was the way to get from the Cumberland Plain to Bathurst and the surrounding districts. For that reason there are many books relating to the early history of both these areas.

The library also has an extensive collection on bushwalking and the development and history of the walking tracks for which the area is both famous and popular.

The library is divided into a reference section and a general section. Membership enables people to borrow from the general section.
