Kilmore Medical Library

The Kilmore Mechanics' Institute Medical Library was established to facilitate the Kilmore & District Hospital's move towards accreditation. It was also faciltated by the gaining of full tax deductibility status for the Institute's 'Library Fund'.

The collection will be on permanent loan to the Kilmore Hospital and will be housed in a dedicated area to permit maximum access and usage by staff. It is expected that additions will be made from time to time as resources permit.
