Season’s Greetings

CSU Regional Archives will close for the Christmas holidays from 12:30 pm on Wednesday 24th December and reopen at 9:00 am on Monday 5th January 2015.

The Archives staff would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. In keeping with the spirit of the season we have included some images of Christmas past in Wagga.
