Welcome!

I’m glad you found us.

This page is an ever-evolving portal for local history, places of interest and and stories about what you might find “a stone’s throw” from Kevin Street Library.

If you would prefer to read this in another language you should find a Google Translate tool at either the bottom or top of this page.

The site will continue to evolve, have a look around but don’t forget to come back and see how it develops.

It’s a place where people can come to learn about the area and shares resources that people can use to do their own investigating.

I called it A Stone’s Throw from Kevin Street because it isn’t really about the library; it’s about what’s around us.

If you are looking for information on the library then go to then click the button below:

I’ve kept the posts short and to the point and hope that they can be enjoyed by a wide range of ages. I have also added links of my sources and for those that want more detail.

If you are new to the internet I hope you find this site easy to use and that it helps you see some of the different things that you can do online. If you think something could be made easier, let me know. For some fun things to try online click below:
