Ron Maidment Archives Shire of Capel

Murals abound along the main street of Capel, an expression of local pride in the town. When you see the possum peering at you, you will have found the Iluka Capel Public Library, which houses the Ron Maidment Archives Room. Created as a result of a major bequest by local resident Ron Maidment, this collection has been further developed and maintained by hard working volunteers who assist the Senior Library Officer
