Rylstone now has its very own library services as the transition to get the new service up and running begins.
Last year state government funding of $72,400 was secured to renovate and refurbish the Mid-Western Regional Council office in Louee Street and transform the premises to include space for a library.
Bathurst MP Paul Toole said the aim of establishing the branch was to encourage members of the public to use the premises by providing a "one stop shop" of council and library services.

"Libraries are at the heart of our community and are transforming rapidly to meet the challenges of the digital age," Mr Toole said.
"Not only are they places to borrow books, but they are also places to read newspapers and magazines, access the internet, to study for school, or to meet up with friends.
"I am thrilled that the NSW Government is continuing its strong support for libraries, especially in regional electorates such as Bathurst.
"It is essential that rural residents have equitable access to services and I am particularly delighted to see grant funding that will assist 30 rural councils in meeting the specific needs of their library users."
